This wholesome Thermomix Chocolate Granola is a delicious blend of oats, seeds, shredded coconut, maple syrup, coconut oil, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and cinnamon. It’s crunchy, guilt-free and beats a bowl of Coco Pops any day!
Store-bought granolas contain a lot of refined sugar, artificial flavourings and additives, so it’s great to make your own. It’s easy to do in the Thermomix, and if you want a non-chocolate version, I also have a recipe for Simple Thermomix Granola made with slightly different ingredients.
Simple Steps to Make
Melt the coconut oil with the maple syrup, cocoa powder, vanilla extract and cinnamon in the Thermomix then add the rest of the ingredients and gently mix on reverse speed to combine. Tip the mixture out onto a large baking tray and spread evenly into a thin layer. Toast in the oven for half an hour, turning the granola halfway through with a spatula.
Ways to Serve our Chocolate Granola
Our favourite way of enjoying Chocolate Granola is with some Greek yoghurt and fresh berries. It also tastes delicious in the following ways:-
- Just on its own with some milk.
- Sprinkled on top of porridge.
- Sprinkled on top of peanut butter or almond butter toast.
- Sprinkled over a smoothie bowl.
Optional Add Ins
We love our Chocolate Granola just as it is but you could also add either or all these ingredients after baking to jazz it up:-
- Dried fruit such as raisins, chopped dates and apricots.
- Cacao nibs or chocolate chips.
- Crushed nuts such as almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts and pecans.
- Freeze-dried raspberries or strawberries.
How to Store
To keep the granola as fresh as possible, transfer to an airtight container or jar and store in a cool dark place. Consume within a month.
