Chocolate Probiotic Granola {Gluten-Free, Sugar Free}

When craving something sweet, crunchy, chocolate-y, nutty… this will hit the spot! It’s a perfect yogurt addition, smoothie topper, or delicious on its own!

The clusters are my favorite part. I purposely break it very gently to maintain large chunks, though feel free to crumble it more if you like a more cereal-like texture!

Also, the amount of time you process it in the food processor (if at all), will help it clump up more. Careful not to over-process as you don’t want a mono-textured granola clump. Boring.

Feel free to change up the almond and sunflower seeds for nuts/seeds of your choice too. I imagine Pecans would work really well with these ingredients.

These simple ingredients come together so easily and are so delicious. Pulse everything in a food processor (or mix in a bowl), spread on a baking sheet, and bake. The hardest part is letting it cool without devouring it!

RECIPE:

Dry:

  • 3 C Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 C Almonds (or nuts of choice)
  • 1/2 C Sunflower seeds ¬†(or seeds of choice)
  • 1/2 C Coconut shreds
  • 1/3 C Cacao powder
  • 2 – 5 Probiotic capsules (optional)
  • Sea salt

Wet:

  • 1/4 C Coconut Oil, Melted
  • 1/2 C Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

Directions

  1. Add all dry ingredients to food processor and pulse a few times until incorporated.
  2. Transfer to a bowl and add wet ingredients and content of Probiotic capsules, stirring to combine.
  3. Line baking tray with parchment and pour granola in even layer. Bake at 350 for 18 minutes. If you prefer clumpier/crispier, add 2 minutes at a time. Watch/smell closely as not to burn.
  4. Let cool to room temperature and enjoy! Store in fridge or freezer.
