Chocolate Granola

chocolate granola

This snack is sweet, filling, and nutritious. What more could you want?

Inspired by a recipe I found on Oh, She Glows, this granola uses soy-free chocolate chips and Sunbutter, instead of peanut butter.

I made it for a client who's nursing and is soy-, peanut-, and dairy-free. She has sweet cravings in the afternoon, but requires snacks that are nutrient dense.

This granola fits the bill.

Note: Substitute pepitas (pumpkin seeds) for the nuts if allergic.

2 1/4 cups rolled oats 1/2 cup pecans (or whatever nuts you prefer) 1/2 tsp sea salt 2 tbsp SunButter (made from sunflower seeds, similar taste to peanut butter) 1 tsp pure vanilla extract 1/3 cup + 2 tbs brown rice syrup 3 tbsp coconut oil 1 1/4 cups soy-free chocolate chips

Directions

In large bowl, mix together oats, nuts, salt. On stove, stir together syrup, oil, SunButter, and vanilla. Add wet to dry and stir until oats are well-coated.

Allow to cool on baking sheet before transferring to jar. Makes 6 cups.
