Enjoy this homemade Double Chocolate Granola on yogurt, in a bowl with milk or simply by the handful. Full of chocolate flavor, it’s packed with nuts and seeds and lightly sweetened with honey.
My husband has a certain favorite kind of granola (that we often get for free). He’s not a huge cereal eater like I am, but when we have his granola on hand, he’ll occasionally join me for a bowl as a bedtime snack.
I do my best to keep it on hand for him. Since I’m a love blogger, Love Grown Foods is fabulous about keeping our pantry stocked…but sometimes, poor planning…or a hungry hubby….means we run out. This happened a few weeks ago so I decided to surprise hubby by making him some homemade chocolate granola to tide him over.
Double Chocolate Granola
I added my own spin by throwing in some extra nuts and seeds, using coconut oil and sweetening it with honey for a fun twist on his favorite. I’ve made homemade granola before but I’ve never tried a chocolate version so I wasn’t totally sure how it would turn out.
Turns out, it was a major hit! I’m typically not a huge chocolate lover and I couldn’t stop grabbing a handful of this each time I went into the pantry.
Here’s how you make it:
Like I said, I enjoyed this granola by the handful but you could also eat it with some Greek yogurt or milk for a protein boost!
I’d say hubby still favors his favorite, but this makes a great substitute when you run out or if you’re looking for a DIY recipe!
