Loco For Coco; Coconut Chocolate Almond Crunch Granola

Image

Healthy, filling and crazy addictive

GRANOLA! the first time you make granola is an experience you’ll always treasure. Your like…

“wow I just successfully tossed  together random things in my cupboard to make edible crunchy GOLD essentially…and Im never going back”.

You will then immediately start eating it by the handfuls half-heartedly trying not to cover the entire kitchen floor with coconut flecks (thats what the vacuums for anyways)

10 handfuls later with a belly full of goodness you might see fit to put it in a tupperware at the back of your cupboard to keep the prying paws of your family away. This granola is just that good. Crunchy, coco-nutty, cinnamon-y, with just a hint of chocolate that leads your taste-buds to believe you might just be eating a homemade chocolate chip cookie.

Except this chocolate chip cookie can be eaten with greek yogurt, toss a banana in there and call it a balanced breakfast.
