Don’t buy granola from stores. Just make it yourself. Because, honestly, they are really easy to make (and eat) and they’re cheaper to make than buy. And it’s healthier because most of the granola out there are loaded with unnecessary ingredients like sugars! AND it’s so customisable!
One important point is that if you wanna add some dried fruit, add it after your granola finished baking.
If you wanna use nuts and seeds, go ahead! Replace up to 1/2c of rolled oats with them!
I combined two of my favourite things and that’s chocolate and coffee. I love it so much ❤
JAVA CHIP GRANOLA
5 tbsp honey (use pure maple syrup to make it vegan)
4 tbsp coconut oil (olive oil will also work)
1 heaped tsp instant coffee powder
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2c rolled oats
1/4 tsp salt
4 tbsp cacao nibs
1 tbsp maca powder (optional)
5 tbsp chocolate chips
Preheat your oven to 160°c.
Whisk together your sweetener, oil, coffee powder and pure vanilla extract well.
Add in your rolled oats, salt, cacao nibs and maca powder and mix well.
Make sure every oat is coated. They will look moist.
Pour into a pan lined with a baking sheet. Spread the granola evenly.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes.
Bake until you get your desired golden brown colour. Be careful not to over bake them because it will burn!
After it’s done, remove from the oven and sprinkle your chocolate chips.
Toss your granola around and watch your chocolate chips melt (OMG MOMENT).
Let it cool completely before storing it in an air tight container for up to 2 weeks.
