Oh hey, I’m back with yet another CHOCOLATE recipe! ha! I’m not even sorry about it. Chocolate is easily one of my favourite things and so you can bet I add lots of it into my life! I made this chocolate granola twice in the past month and just knew I had to share the recipe with you guys.
This chocolate granola is so so yummy! I seriously could not stop reaching for it. It’s delicious on it’s own, with non dairy milk, sprinkled on top of pancakes, with yogurt or oatmeal- yum! How would YOU eat it?
It has a delicious chocolate flavour without being too sweet. I also used applesauce instead of my usual coconut oil and really liked the texture it gave to it (and yet you can’t taste the apples!) but you could always use oil. I’m by no mean “oil free” but I don’t feel that it’s very nutrient dense so I pick and choose when I eat it.
Granola can be a tricky one to buy because the brands with awesome ingredients tend to be $$$ while the cheaper options can just be full of refined sugar. So making it yourself is a great option but I know homemade granola can be tricky! It can burn easily or be really crumbly with no yummy chunks… But I’ve been making granola for years and once you get the hang of it, it’s really quite easy! Just make sure to cook it on a low heat and check it often!
I also think subbing peanut butter for the applesauce could be reeeeally good so I plan on trying that soon! I love playing around with recipes- cooking should be FUN!
