So here it is again, I am talking chocolate. Precisely: chocolate and coconut granola. Breakfast to me is a holy ceremony and even the doctors say it’s the most important meal of the day (ha, I’ve always known it!). And because chocolate is a mood lifter, I think it’s a great idea to have it already in the morning :)
Probably around 95% of the granola (but also cereals, cornflakes, etc) that can be bought in stores is over sugared, for 100 g of it there comes around 45 g sugar! So if you want to avoid sugar but still love breakfast cereals just do it yourself. It is really crazy how easy you can make granola and how fast you can enjoy this crunchy breakfast the healthy way. Not to mention the pride that fills you after you have made a whole batch all by yourself!
This recipe is ready in ca half an hour, it’s a total no-brainer and before you start considering doing it, you are faster if you just do it :) Enjoy!
Ingredients: (makes a ca 2 liter jar)
3 cups whole grain oats
0,5 cup sunflower seeds
0,5 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup desiccated coconut
0,5 cup cocoa
5 tbsp agave syrup (or a sweetener of your choice)
2 flat tbsp coconut oil
1. Preheat your oven to ca 175 °C.
2. In a bowl mix with a spoon oats, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, desiccated coconut and cocoa.
3. In a blender blend smooth the banana, agave syrup and coconut oil. Pour the sweet liquid over the dry ingredients in the bowl and mix together with a spoon until the dry ingredients are fully covered. Spread on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Bake around 20 minutes, until the mixture is dry and chunky (move the chunks 1 or 2 times while baking to make sure they get dry on all sides). Let it cool and fill in a airtight container.
