Anybody else like some seriously healthy crunch in their granola? But also chocolate...? If so, you've come to the right place! Let's talk chocolate ancient grains nut granola.
Apparently, I'm a massive homemade granola fan. Who knew?? I love grabbing some as a bite on the go, throwing some into a little bit of yogurt for a quick before dinner snack (or after, because let's be real, I eat all day long), or even just in a bowl with a little coconut milk for breakfast.
To be completely honest, I've tried SO many different types of granola from the store and none of them make me nearly as happy as a homemade batch. As it bakes in the oven, it's just the most heavenly smell 😍. Plus it's sooo easy to make so why not??
In light of my "keeping healthy" (well, healthier) ways, a super food granola, albiet with a little chocolate for extra flavor, was necessary. This chocolate ancient grains nut granola is one of my all time faves.
SO 🙌🏻 MUCH 🙌🏻 CRUNCH! And it tastes so good you won't even realize how many awesomely healthy additions there are: quinoa, buckwheat groats, almonds, walnuts, pepitas, and of course, rolled oats. I like to use coconut oil as a granola base for more flavor, with honey, maple syrup and a little molasses for sweetening.
PS. This is a gluten free, dairy free recipe. If you're concerned about the "buckwheat groats", no need! Buckwheat is actually a seed, not a grain with no relation to wheat at all, and is considered more of a fruit 👍🏻.
