Coconut Chocolate Granola

Who else loves chocolate for breakfast?
Did a little experimenting with this coconut chocolate combo because which was inspired by a granola we packed on a camping trip in the summer. ⁣⁣
Store bought granola can be tricky because even though it claims all the goodness there’s often more sugar and sometimes lots of unpronounceables depending on the brand. The easy solution is to make it at home because you control what you put in it! ⁣⁣
It’s a quick process and you can play with flavour a to make it your own as well. This one is definitely a keeper! Great with some yogurt and fruit for breakfast, an afternoon snack, or just straight munching by the handful because it makes those big clusters, that in my mind is the sign of the perfect granola.
Food is love friends. ❤️
