This would make the perfect quick breakfast or snack. Try love adding this granola to some yogurt and berries for an easy breakfast or snack.

The base is nuts, oats and chia seeds. To keep things on the healthier side, we went with maple syrup for natural sweetness. And our Öko-Caribe 70% give a flavourful boost to the roasted nuts and seeds.

Easy to make and delicious to eat, enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 120g gluten-free rolled oats

  2. To a blend (or alternatively a mixing bowl), add the oats, nuts, chia seeds, and cocoa powder. Pulse (or stir) to combine.

  3. In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the coconut oil and maple syrup until melted and combined. Pour over the dry ingredients and mix or stir well.
