This is my own version of those super expensive organic chocolate granolas you can buy in your health food store. I tried to healthify it a bit by not adding much sugar and fat and I really liked what I ended up with. I hope youll enjoy this, too. :) Feel free to experiment with different types of fruits, chips and chocolate. This can be vegan if you use a vegan bittersweet chocolate and vegan pb chips.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12 cup mixed nuts, chopped
  • 12 cup puffed brown rice cereal (no sugar added)
  • 14 cup puffed buckwheat cereal (no sugar added)
  • 14 cup puffed amaranth cereal (no sugar added)
  • 23 cup oats
  • 12 cup corn flakes (unsweetened)
  • 14 cup desiccated coconut (unsweetened)
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 100 g applesauce (unsweetened)
  • 12 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Add in after baking

  • 14 cup raisins
  • 12 cup dried banana pieces
  • 18 cup dried cherries
  • 18 cup peanut butter chips
  • 18 cup carob chips
  • 18 cup chocolate shavings (I used bittersweet)
  • 18 cup mini chocolate chip (I used bittersweet)

Directions

  1. In a big bowl combine all of the dry ingredients (nuts through flax seeds).
  2. Add the honey, applesauce and vanilla extract. Using your hands mix well making sure that everything is coated nicely.
  3. Spread the mixture on a rimmed paper-lined baking sheet pressing it together like you would in order to make cereal bars.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven at 160°C/320°F for 25 minutes turning the granola once after 15 minutes. This may vary on your oven so keep a close look on it during the last 10 minutes in order not to burn it.
  5. Remove from oven and immediately add in raisins, banana chips, cherries, pb chips, carob chips and shaved chocolate. Once the chocolate has melted, stir to ensure an even chocolate coating.
  6. Allow granola to cool and then break up bigger lumps and add in the mini chocolate chips.
  7. Store in an airtight container in a cool and dark place. It wont keep longer than a week due to the moisture content.
  8. Enjoy.
