Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups uncooked rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup shredded, unsweetened coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts of choice (Optional. Leave out for a nut-free option)
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or honey
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extracts
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking mat.  
  • In a medium bowl, mix oats, cocoa powder, coconut, salt, chia seeds, and nuts (if using) and set aside. In a small bowl, mix honey/maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
  • Pour over oat mixture and stir until all dry ingredients are well coated. Spread evenly on lined baking sheet so that the granola is only in a single layer.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, stirring at the halfway point. Remove from oven and let cool for several hours, stirring occasionally.   
  • If your granola still seems soft when you remove it from the oven, do not bake longer, as it will harden as it cools.
  • Once completely cool, store in an air tights container for up to two weeks.

Notes
