I am obsessed with this granola right now! I love topping it on açaí and smoothie bowls, having it with some chia pudding and coconut yoghurt or just snacking on it on it's own! Why not even pair it with some tropical fruit??
Cacao is super high in magnesium, iron, antioxidants and more and is one of my favourite superfoods. Especially paired with blanched hazelnuts.. SO yum!!
Choc Hazelnut Granola
1 3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup walnuts, almond & blanched hazelnuts
2 tbsp pumpkin & sunflower seeds
1 tbsp flaxseed meal
1-2 tbsp cacao nibs
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp agave or other liquid sweetener of choice
1 tbsp smooth almond butter
Handful of dairy-free dark chocolate chunks (optional)
Small pinch of cinnamon (optional)
Good pinch of pink himalayan salt
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Mix everything together in a large mixing bowl until well incorporated.
Pour granola on a baking tray lined with baking paper and spread it all out on the tray but keep firmly together. Roughly press down on the granola so it's flat.
Bake for 13-14 mins.
Let cool for around 10 mins before breaking up into chucks.
Store in a container at room temperature.
