Oh how the candles will be lit, it’s Halloween.
Ever since Aimee from Wallflower Kitchen posted her Graveyard Chocolate Mousse Pots recipe, I knew I’d make her cute little pots for a little feasting this Halloween. Being someone who enjoys varying textures in her food, though, I wanted to go for something crunchier than crumbled raw Nakd bars to top the mousse pots. Solution: chocolate granola! I had posted another chocolate granola recipe prior to this one, but it consists of 11 ingredients, which didn’t sit too well with both my emptier pantry and current slightly more minimalistic self. I challenged myself to create another recipe with far fewer ingredients without compromising on the taste, and… I did it! 🙂
Less definitely can be more.
7-9 tbsp maple syrup
(depending on how sweet You’d like it)
1.5 cups oats
3 tbsp cacao nibs
3 tbsp cacao/ carob powder
2 tbsp chia seeds (OPTIONAL)
1/2 tsp vanilla powder (OPTIONAL)
- Preheat oven to 150°C (300°F).
- Mix all dry ingredients in a large bowl.
- Add the maple syrup to the dry ingredients and mix till well combined.
- Crumble the mixture onto a parchment lined baking tray (leave big chunks!).
- Bake for 15 minutes, then shuffle the granola clusters around a bit before putting the granola back in the oven for another 10 minutes.
- Let cool for about 10 minutes to allow the granola to crisp up.
