Granola made with chocolate and chai spice

Recipe Ingredients for Cocoa chai granola

3 1/4 cups organic rolled oats
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup walnuts
1/4 cup Coconut Angel Flake Sweetened
4 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Cocoa chai granola

  1. Pre heat the oven to 350'F. Mix together the rolled oats, sliced almonds and shredded coconut in a medium bowl.

  2. In a small saucepan, heat the oil + honey over low-medium heat. Once heated through, add the vanilla.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the cocoa powder, salt, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground cardamom and ground ginger. Note: if you'd like a stronger chai flavour, add 1/4 teaspoon of cardamon + ginger.

  4. Add the cocoa/spice mixture to the oil/honey mixture. Stir until well combined.

  5. Pour the wet mixture on top of the oats/nut mixture. Mix well so that all of the oats and nuts are thoroughly moistened.

  6. Pour the granola onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Spread the granola into an even layer on the baking sheet. Bake the granola for 15 minutes. Turn the granola mixture over and then bake for another 5 to 10 minutes (or until the granola is lightly browned and a bit crunchy).

  7. Allow the granola to cool on the pan for at least 15 minutes. Break up the cooled granola with your fingers creating nice sized clusters. Granola can be stored in an air tight container at room temperature for 2 weeks.
