Almond Mocha Granola
AuthorRegina | Leelalicious
1tablespooninstant espresso powder
1/4cuphoneyor maple syrup
2/3cupsemi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 300 F.
In a large bowl combine oats, almond slices and shredded coconut.
Heat coconut oil and honey in a small bowl (in the microwave, stove top or in preheating oven) until melted and stir together with vanilla extract.
Pour over oat mixture and combine. Place the mixture on a large baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and stir. Then bake for another 10-15 minutes.
Sprinkle warm granola with chocolate chips and stir until the chocolate is melted and coats the granola.
Let cool (you can speed this up in the fridge) before breaking into clusters. Store in an airtight container (like mason jars). In warm months I keep this granola in the fridge to keep the chocolate from melting.
