  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts, or your favorites)
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips

Cooking Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (163°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the oats, nuts, cocoa powder, and salt. Mix well.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the maple syrup, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients. Stir until everything is well-coated. Seriously, give it a good mix!
  5. Spread the mixture evenly on the lined baking sheet.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through for even baking.
  7. Remove from oven and let it cool completely. It will crisp up as it cools. Patience, young grasshopper.
  8. Once cool, sprinkle in the chocolate chips. Toss to combine, and you’re all set!


  • Alternative Ingredients: Swap maple syrup with honey, or coconut oil with olive oil.
  • Garnishing Options: Add dried fruits like cranberries or raisins. A sprinkle of sea salt can be magical too.
  • Cooking Tips: For chunkier granola, press the mixture down firmly on the baking sheet before baking.
