Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup organic peanut butter or cashew butter (or combination)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup flaxseed
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp hemp
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup almonds roughly chopped (option to roast)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut

For the Topping:

  • 2 tbsp almonds roughly chopped (option to roast)
  • 2 tbsp dark chocolate (chips or bar - 70% cacao)
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan on low, add nut butter, coconut oil, honey, vanilla, and cinnamon.  Stir until the mixture is smooth and creamy.

  2. Remove from heat and fold in flaxseed, chia, hemp, and oats.  Next fold in the almonds and shredded coconut.

  3. Pour granola mixture into 8 X 4 parchment lined loaf pan.  Spread evenly, pressing down with spoon or hands.  For the topping, press 2 tbsp roughly chopped almonds evenly into the top surface of the granola.

  4. Melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil in a saucepan or double broiler on low until smooth, stirring throughout.  Drizzle the melted chocolate diagonally over the granola.

  5. Cover and place in the fridge for 30 mins or freezer for 15 mins, until the mixture has hardened.  Remove the bars and cut into 8 slices.  Store bars in the fridge for up to a week.  They can be put back in the loaf pan (covered) or you can individually wrap them in plastic.  Enjoy!
