Chocolate Coconut Granola

Chocolate Coconut Granola

This homemade granola reminds me of the kid cereal that turns the milk into chocolate milk except this one is free of preservatives and artificial flavors/ colors. Bonus!Chocolate Coconut Granola & Spoon

  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/3 cup slivered or sliced almonds
  • 2 tbsp. coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. raw honey
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp. water

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with either a silicone mat or parchment paper. In a large bowl, stir together oats, coconut, and almonds.

In a small saucepan over medium heat, add the remaining ingredients and stir until dissolved. Pour the mixture over the oats. Stir well to incorporate throughout. Spread evenly over prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, stirring at 15 minute intervals. Cool completely. If needed, break into smaller clusters. Store in an airtight container.

Serve with milk or mix into vanilla yogurt.
