Recipe Notes

  • Don't feel the need to follow the recipe to the tee. Add whatever spices, nuts, seeds etc. You like!

  • Don't add to much cocoa powder, otherwise, you may have a dry, chalky experience when you eat the Granola.

  • Heat up the honey so that it's thinned out. This will allow you to easily coat the whole Granola mixture.

  • Feel free to spice the honey up by adding herbs or aromatics to it as it heats up.

  • If you're vegan and you don't want to use honey, you can use maple syrup or golden syrup instead.

  • Bake the Granola at a lower heat for a longer period of time so it doesn't burn.

  • Let the granola cool down a bit before you store it away.
