Recipe type: breakfast
Serves: 5 cups
  • ¼ cup coconut oil, melted
  • ¼ cup brown rice syrup (or corn syrup, or more honey)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa powder (use 1 Tbsp more + 1 extra Tbsp oil for more chocolate taste)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (I like the big flakes)
  • 1.5 cups oats
  • 3 cups natural chocolatey cereal (I used 2 cups One Degree Organic Brown Rice Cacao Crisps + 1 cup Annie’s Cocoa Bunnies)
  • ½ cup seeds like sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds (or chopped nuts)
  1. Combine oil, sweeteners, cocoa powder and vanilla in a mixing bowl.
  2. Once smooth, add in the dry ingredients and toss to coat.
  3. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and lay granola out in a single layer on the baking sheet. Bake at 325 for 15 minutes then remove and stir. Reduce heat to 300 and put back in oven for an additional 10-15 minutes or until oats seem cooked and are beginning to brown.
  4. Let cool then crumble into smaller chunks or pieces.
  5. Store in a sealed jar for up to a month.
