Chocolate granola DIY recipe:
Stop buying over-the-top, super expensive granola from the supermarket when you can make the most delicious granola at home in no time and with minimal effort. Also, you can customize this according to your preference, throw the things that you have in your pantry, mix them and bake.
Use dry fruits you like, you can even add coconut flakes, dehydrated fruits, seeds, the list can go on.
GF oats: 4 cups. ( I used this brand)
Amaranth or any other GF grain of your choice: 1/4 cup.
Chocolate powder: 1 cup (I used Hershey’s).
Chopped almonds: 1/2 cup (or you can use any dry fruit of your choice).
Homey/Maple syrup: 1/3 cup (adjust the sweetness according to taste).
Coconut oil: 1/4 or 1/3 cup, adjust this according to the grain you use. Some grains absorb more oil.
