Chocolate Pecan Granola

Chocolate Pecan Granola Recipe

By Peanut Palate

🔪Prep Time: 10 mins

👩‍🍳Cook Time: 25 mins


2 tbsp refined coconut oil not the virgin/extra virgin ones that taste like coconut

2 tbsp 100% pure maple syrup or any other liquid sweetener

½ cup dry rolled oats

1 tbsp cocoa powder

½ tsp vanilla extract

3 tbsp chopped pecans

2 tbsp vegan dark chocolate chips or a chopped dark chocolate bar

⅛ tsp salt


1Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

2Melt the coconut oil and maple syrup in a stovetop pan over low heat.

3In a separate bowl, mix together the dry ingredients, except the chocolate chips and pecans.

4Once the items on the stove are melted, mix them into the dry ingredients bowl.

5Stir in the pecans, and put this mixture onto a baking tray. You can use a pizza tray or a cookie sheet – spread it around the tray as granola, don't pat it down.

6Sprinkle the chocolate chips over top.

7Bake for 25 minutes on the middle rack of the oven.

8Remove from the oven and let it cool for 20 minutes, so the granola can harden.

9Enjoy! You can keep it stored in an airtight container.
