Looking for a way to sweeten up your breakfast? Look no further. Our chocolate granola is the perfect morning treat to kickstart your day. The granola has a great crunchy texture from the combination of oats, cocoa nibs, almonds and shredded coconut. We used maple syrup, a naturally unrefined sugar, to sweeten the granola.

Feel free to use this recipe as a guideline, and customize is to your taste buds. Swap out hazelnuts for almonds, or add dried cherries. All of these ingredients are regular pantry staples, so whip up a batch whenever the craving strikes. Whether you put it on top of yogurt, or eat it plain, we guarantee this chocolate granola is going to be your new favorite snack.
