Chocolate granola with almonds

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Servings 3 cups
Crispy, sweet, crunchy, and decadent are just a few of the words we could use to describe this delicious, chocolate-y granola. If you're looking for the secret to a granola with big, crunchy chunks, just press the mix into compact pieces with your hands before baking, like you would with homemade granola bars. When you do it this way, it takes a little longer to bake, but it's worth it.

For an extra decadent version of this recipe, let the granola cool for a few minutes and add some extra chunks of 70% dark chocolate chunks. And while you're at it, why not add some chopped dried fruit and dried coconut strips?

How it's made



  1. Mix the oats and the cacao powder. Coarsely chop the almonds and add them to the mix.
  2. In a large saucepan, bring the coconut oil and maple syrup to a gentle boil. Mix well. Add the chocolate and let melt over low heat.
  3. Remove the saucepan from heat, add the oat mix to the saucepan, and toss well so that every piece is coated with chocolate.
  4. Spread the mix on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 minutes. Mix with a wooden spoon every few minutes.
  5. Let cool and enjoy! If you're feeling extra decadent, add chocolate chips to the cooled mix.
