Chocolate Granola with Coconut Cream

12 February 2015

Store bought granola is often laden with hidden sugars and unhealthy fats. That is why I always prefer to make my own at home. This recipe reminds me a little of coco-pops (if you are from SA you will definitely know this) as it turns your milk chocolate brown. I use many seeds in this recipe to ensure a great balance of healthy fats. Hope you love this one as much as I do!


1 cup coconut pieces

1 cup oats

¼ cup cashew nuts

¼ cup chia seeds

¼ cup pumpkin seeds

¼ cup linseeds

¼ cup sultanas/goji berries/chopped dates

¼ cup coconut oil melted

4 tbsp. maple syrup/xylitol/raw honey

2/3 tbsp. cacao powder


Preheat oven to 180⁰C

Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl and combine well

Line baking sheet with tray baking paper and cover with granola mix.

Bake in the oven for 25 - 30minutes until crisp but not burnt

Serve topped over ½ cup of unsweetened Coconut Cream

Store leftover granola in glass jar. Keeps for up to two weeks


Yours in Health Always,
