You may have noticed my love of granola. We don’t really eat breakfast cereal for a number of reasons, but sometimes you just need something yummy to put into your raw milk. I saw a recipe for Hot Chocolate Granola and I was inspired to try something similar.
I started with my regular granola recipe. I mixed together 1/2 cup coconut oil, 1/2 cup maple syrup, and a splash of vanilla.
In a separate bowl, I mixed together 4 cups of oats, 1/4 cup of cocoa powder, and a few pinches of salt.
I mixed the wet and dry ingredients together, spread it on a baking sheet, and baked it at 350*. The hardest part was knowing when it was done, since it was already pretty dark!
This recipe is definitely a keeper. It is reminiscent of those chocolate cereals that turn your milk into chocolate milk. MMM!
