An easy and stress-free chocolate flavoured granola recipe that is both healthy and delicious. Make a nice big jar of this stuff and you'll be thanking yourself later.
Pre-heat your oven to 150 degrees Celsius (300 degrees F)
Put the honey and your vanilla extract in a small pot or pan. Heat the honey up until it thins out, then add it to your oat mixture. Mix the honey through until every oat, nut and seed is covered in the honey.
Spread the granola mix out onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Take the granola out, give it a good mix, then put it back in the oven and bake for another 20-25 minutes.
Once the granola is done, take it out, let it cool for about 10 minutes then add your cranberries and mix I through.
Store in a jar and your granola is ready!!
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.
