This Naturally Sweetened Chocolate Hazelnut Granola is a perfect snack! Crunchy Oat clusters combine with Hazelnuts and Chocolate Chunks for a yummy treat.




  1. Preheat the oven to 325F. Add the Maple Syrup, Almond Butter, Vanilla Extract, Cacao Powder, and Salt to the base of a large bowl. Whisk until evenly incorporated.
  2. Pour the Oats, Hazelnuts, Pumpkin Seeds, and Coconut into the bowl and fold them into the wet mixture, until all pieces are evenly coated. Transfer this mixture to a greased or lined baking tray and press it into a thin, even layer using a spatula.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes on the bottom rack of the oven, then remove and use a spatula to toss/flip the granola. Return to the oven and bake for an additional 6-7 minutes, then remove.
  4. Immediately sprinkle the Chocolate Chips over the mixture, using a spatula to gently toss them. If you’d like the Chips to completely melt, stir them a bit more until they melt completely. Let the Granola and Chocolate cool completely on the tray before removing.
  5. Serve as desired; store leftovers at room temperature or in the fridge (recommended for crunchier granola) for up to one month.
