Granola

This recipe was originally part of this post but in order to make them both Ziplist compatible, I’ve separated this out. Basically know this: granola with chocolate needs to be part of your life immediately.

French Chocolate Granola

Yield: About 5 cups

Ingredients

  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup raw almonds, chopped
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut (once again, I used sweetened coconut because I had it on hand)
  • 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 Tbsp. mild honey
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • ½ cup, or more, finely chopped bittersweet chocolate

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, coconut, sugar, and salt. Stir well to blend.
  3. In a small saucepan, warm the honey and oil over low heat, whisking occasionally – watch out! the oil will want to splash - until the honey is loose. Pour over the dry ingredients, and stir to combine well.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes, or until golden. Set a timer to go off halfway through the baking time, so that you can give the granola a good stir; this helps it to cook evenly. When it’s ready, remove the pan from the oven, stir well – this will keep it from cooling into a hard, solid sheet – and cool completely.
  5. When cool, transfer the granola to a large bowl, storage jar, or zipper-lock plastic bag. Add the chocolate, and stir (or shake, if using a jar or bag) to mix.
  6. Store in an airtight container.

    How would high quality chocolate chips be in this? Not much of a bittersweet chocolate fan, but always have choc chips around. I loved your cashew granola recipe and am trying this one next. Thanks for your wonderful recipes! Your website is one of the few whose recipes consistently turn out well!
