Homemade Mocha Chocolate Granola

This is a 'recipe' you can throw together with a few different ingredients on hand - don't make yourself use only what I did.  If you want to throw in some sliced almonds, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, even a little wheat germ or hazelnut meal - feel free!

If it's a little too dry from adding a bit 'much' of the dry ingredients, just add a tad bit more butter, a little coconut oil, some honey or even a touch more coffee.  Taste test before baking and see if you want to add a little more sweetener, cocoa or cinnamon.  When you break it apart, you can leave it larger for snacking or smaller pieces for cereal with milk, almond milk or as a topping on ice cream or frozen yogurt.

Homemade Mocha Chocolate Granola

1/2 c golden flax seed meal
1/4 almond flour
1 c oatmeal
1 T cocoa
3 pks. Stevia in the Raw or other favorite sweetener*
2 t cinnamon
1/2 c cold, strong coffee
1 T butter

Preheat oven to 300.  Combine the dry ingredients in a food processor and pulse briefly to mix.  Add butter and coffee.  Pulse again for less than 30 seconds.  Spread out on a parchment lined baking sheet.  Press it with your fingers to thin out.  Bake 15 minutes, drop the temperature to 250 degrees and bake another 15 minutes.  Crumble or cut.  Put it back into the warm, turned off oven and let it set for a few hours or even overnight until the granola is crisp.   Store in an airtight package or you can seal it in your food sealer.

*On the Stevia in the Raw website it said 1 packet equals 2 teaspoons 'sugar' so for whatever sweetener (or sugar) you want to use, judge accordingly.


I like to break ours apart in large pieces for snacking, they can be broke smaller for cereal


LOVE my food sealer - this is a really affordable, small one, but works great and I love it.
However, there are tons of options out there if you are looking for one.
