Is this breakfast? Or dessert? – The Ultimate Granola

Is this breakfast? Or dessert? Or a salty sweet afternoon snack? I’d say all of the above!

This hearty granola has a nice healthy base of oats and almonds and then things start to get a tiny bit dessert-y, if you can handle that, with the addition of cocoa powder and coconut oil and chocolate chips melted all up into the clusters. There is something to be said about baking granola just for the heady smell to spread in your house. Can’t stop sniffing!

Adding in chocolate chips when the granola is still warm but not cooking is great because it makes for great texture once it cools – the chocolate chips will sort of melt their way into the clusters and harden within each individual granola cluster. SO GOOD.

(Editors Note: Thanks to Gauri for inspiring us, *spoiling us!* with her crazy crazy granola. If you’re not much of a culinary aficionado…you can check out her shop here!)


3 cups rolled oats
1¼ cups sliced raw almonds
½ cup cocoa powder
¼ teaspoon salt
⅔ cup melted coconut oil
1/2 cup peanut butter1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the oats, almonds, cocoa and salt in a large bowl.
Whisk the melted coconut oil and peanut butter together. Set aside.
Pour the liquids over the dry ingredients and stir to combine.
Spread the granola into two large pans in an even layer.
Bake for 40-50 minutes total, stopping about halfway through to check the granola and shake or stir the pan if needed.
After 50 minutes, sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the granola, return to the oven for 5-10 minutes until chocolate chips are very soft.
Let the granola stand for 1-2 hours till completely cool!
Scoop the granola into jars and store. Eat. Snack. Repeat.

I love lists, my hair always sits weirdly on my head, and I can't get through a day without obsessing over my 2 crazy pups. I haven’t changed much since I was a kid—illustrating, crafting and eating cookies are still at the top of my favourites list. When I’m not rambling about in my head looking for words, I’m found either glued to a computer or to a book.
