This is my dessert granola. I feel healthier eating oats and almonds with my chocolate.
Seriously, this granola, baked from a recipe adapted from Orangette, is flavorful and filling. You can find her original recipe here.
Here's my adaptation of Molly's recipe.
preheat oven to 300 degrees
3 c oats
1/2 c of KY Kernel pecans and-or almonds (or nuts of your choice)
4 T milled flax
pinch of salt
1/4 c cacao nibs
In a small saucepan, warm:
6 T honey
2 T coconut oil
1 t espresso powder
Pour the warm liquid over the oat mixture; stir well.
Bake on parchment lined baking sheet 10 minutes; stir well and bake 10 more minutes.
Turn oven off
Leave granola in oven for 10 more minutes (total time 30 minutes).
Remove pan from oven.
1/2 c dried currents
1 bar chopped Coffee Bean Olive and Sinclair chocolate
Allow to cool completely.
Store in tightly sealed container in freezer.
