Description

Healthy Vegan Chocolate Granola is so easy to make and delicious. Made with 8 simple ingredients and oil-free, this healthy dark chocolate granola is the perfect morning treat or plant-based snack.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup chopped nuts of choice (I prefer a mixture of almonds and walnuts)
  • 1/2 cup vegan chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tsp. vanilla

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350˚F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all of the dry ingredients into a large bowl and stir to combine.
  3. Add the wet ingredients and mix everything together until all of the ingredients are evenly combined and coated.
  4. Use a wooden spoon or rubber spatula to evenly and thinly spread the granola mixture onto the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 30 minutes then remove and let the granola cool for 20-30 minutes. 
  6. Break apart into small or large chunks and enjoy. 
  7. Store in a mason jar or a sealed container for up to a week.


Notes

Refrigerator: Store your healthy chocolate granola in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.

Freezer: You can also store your granola in an airtight, freezer-friendly container for up to 2 months. And, the best part? It doesn’t need to thaw. Just dump it in a bowl and cover it with some homemade almond milk, oat milk, or cashew milk.
