Chocolate Granola

Who can say no to chocolate for breakfast? I know I can’t, because chocolate is life

My bowl is from Drøbak Keramikk

Another recipe made in partnership with the lovely people over at VGAN , my favourite chocolate brand for sure. This granola is packed with big and delicious clusters, you might end up eating it all in one go because it is so addicting. Sorry not sorry

Difficulty: Beginner Prep Time 10 min Cook Time 25 min Rest Time 1 hour Total Time 1 hr 35 mins
Servings: 8


Dry Ingredients

Wet Ingredients

Chocolate for the end


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C

  2. Mix the wet and dry ingredients separately and then combine until you get a clumpy mix

  3. Press the mix onto a lined baking sheet in one even layer, make sure it sticks together, it should look like one big piece of granola

  4. Bake for 15 minutes, then rotate the tray 180° and bake for another 5-10 minutes

  5. Once the tray is out of the oven sprinkle over your chopped chocolate and let everything cool completely

  6. Store the granola in airtight containers and enjoy with milk, on top of yogurt and smoothies or just eat it by the handful 


This is not a very sweet granola, it is more dark and bitter, perfect for breakfast in my opinion. If you would like it sweeter just add some more syrup or some tbs of coconut sugar to the dry ingredients

  1. Hi Bakerina,

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

    I wasn’t able to fully follow the recipe since I did not have any banana and only almond butter no peanut butter. But this is why baking granola is so nice, variations are infinite.
    I’ll definitely follow the full recipe next time. I used to sometimes add banana chips as topping but I never thought to use it as a wet ingredient.

    Adding peanut or almond butter was also new, it also contributes to create strong-flavored clusters, brilliant.

    I didn’t mix the cocoa powder but sprinkled on the top of the granola layer just putting it into the oven like I would do with cinnamon on the top of a apple/pear crumble. I wanted to be sure to feel the bitterness and power of the raw cocoa in every bite but it is perhaps more effective to mix everything together. Once again experimenting is part of the fun.


    1. Thank you so much for trying it Benoit! The changes you made sound amazing, and I’m sure it came out delicious! I really appreciate you commenting, this made my day xx

      1. Hi Bakerina,

        Second attempt: I followed the recipe this time and I knew it will be good when mixing all the ingredients. What a difference, this was so good and came out with a beautiful color !

        I did not sprinkle the cocoa powder, so I lost the bitterness of the cocoa compared to last time but that’s easy to fix.

        The third attempt will be the good one. I’m on my own now 🙂

        Thanks again for sharing this recipe, I’d love to see another granola variant !
