Chocolate Hazelnut Granola

We’ve started to make our own muesli at home, and I just so happened to stumble upon this recipe.  What can I say, it’s freaking amazing!  A cinch to make, doesn’t use weirdo ingredients, and is mighty tasty AND healthy to boot.  Give it a try, your tastebuds will thank you.

We ate this mixed into a serving of vanilla soy yoghurt and it was the bomb!  Haven’t tried it with almond milk yet, but that’s next on my list.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup hazelnuts, chopped
  • 1 cup dates, chopped (I used medjool dates)
  • 1½ cups shredded coconut
  • 3 tbs cocoa (I used cacao – I think cocoa would be too sweet for me first thing in the morning!)
  • ¼ cup melted coconut oil
  • ½ cup maple syrup
  • pinch salt (I used himalayan pink salt)

Method:

  • Preheat oven to 200°c and line a large tray with baking paper (I used a non-stick tray instead of baking paper).
  • In a large bowl, add the oats, hazelnuts, dates and shredded coconut and stir until combined.
  • In a small bowl, add the melted coconut oil, cocoa, maple syrup and salt and whisk until combined.
  • Pour the liquid into the large bowl and stir until all ingredients are coated.
  • Pour the mixture onto the baking paper in an even layer.
  • Place in the oven for 10 min stirring once after about 5 min until the top becomes slightly crispy (I forgot to stir it, it still turned out fine!)
  • Allow to cool for 20 min before serving to allow it to get crispy and yummy.
  • Enjoy!
