French Chocolate Granola

5 star (1 rating)


  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • ½ cup raw almonds, chopped
  • ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 6 tablespoons honey
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • ½ cup, or more, finely chopped bittersweet chocolate


  • Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, coconut, sugar, and salt. Stir well to blend.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Store in an airtight container.
