Ingredients

  • 2 cups Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 cup Pecan Nuts
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder unsweetened
  • 1/3 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 cup Coconut Oil
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Pre-heat the oven to 170°C (340°F).
  • Add the oats, cocoa powder and salt in a large bowl.
  • Roughly chop the Pecan nuts and add them to the bowl as well. Mix well.
  • Melt the coconut oil and add it to the oats, then add the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  • With a wooden spoon or spatula mix well all the ingredients, then spread them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  • Compact them and press them well with a spoon. They should cover the whole surface of the baking sheet, so the layer shouldn't be too thick. but also not too thin otherwise you won't get clumps.
  • Bake in the pre-heated oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Let it cool completely, then transfer to a jar with a spoon.

Notes

If you don't like salted chocolate, I suggest you decrease the amount of salt in the recipe to 1/4 tsp.
Store the granola in an airtight container in a cool and dry place.
