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.
