Dark Chocolate Sea Salt GRANOLA! 9 ingredients, 30 minutes, naturally sweetened! #vegan #glutenfree #granola #chocolate #minimalistbaker

This granola is impressed by one I attempted just lately by Purely Elizabeth. I demolished the entire bag in a matter of days and knew I needed to create a model for the weblog.

This recipe is straightforward, requiring simply 9 elements and roughly 30 minutes to make!

The base is nuts, oats, chia seeds, and coconut. To preserve issues on the wholesome aspect, I went with maple syrup and coconut sugar for pure sweetness. And the chocolate taste comes from each cocoa powder and vegan darkish chocolate! Yessss, come to Mama.

Serves: four.5 cups


  • three cups (270 g) gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup (~100 g) chopped uncooked nuts (almonds, pecans, and/or walnuts are finest)

  1. Preheat oven to 340 levels F (171 C).
  2. To a meals processor (or mixing bowl), add the oats, nuts, coconut, chia seeds, coconut sugar, salt, and cocoa powder. Pulse just a few instances (or stir) to mix.
  3. In a small saucepan over medium-low warmth, heat the coconut oil and maple syrup till melted and mixed. Pour over the dry elements and blend or stir nicely. If utilizing a meals processor, this breaks down the oats and nuts a bit extra so it is a finer texture, however that is optionally available.
  4. Spread the combination evenly onto a baking sheet and bake for 17-24 minutes (or till aromatic and deep golden brown), stirring a bit close to the midway level to make sure even baking.
  5. Let cool fully. Then add chocolate (optionally available). Place in a container that has an air-tight seal, and it ought to preserve for just a few weeks. Or retailer within the freezer as much as 1 month or longer.
