Easy and decadent chocolate granola made with simple, wholesome ingredients. It is chocolatey, crunchy and very addictive!
If you haven’t tried homemade granola, you need to try one right now! It’s so easy to make, it’s delicious, it’s healthier than buying it from a store. The best part of making your own granola is that you have a better control of the ingredients you choose. You can reduces sugar consumption, you can customize flavors, use whatever ingredients you have on hand (nuts, seeds and dried fruits) and it’s so easy to put together.
In this recipe i used cocoa nibs instead of chocolate chips. Cocoa nibs have been touted as a superfood that’s packed with more antioxidants than dark chocolate and there is a huge amount of fiber in just a one ounce serving of cacao nibs. They’re very good for you, and have an intense chocolate taste that you will love!
I used organic cocoa nibs from suncorefoods . If you would like to try this, use my code MEIYEE15 to save 15%!

Turn granola onto a rimmed cookie sheet and bake for 20 mins, tossing occasionally. The granola will dry out and crisp up while it cools. Store in an air-tight container until ready to use.
