ohhhk. I am seriously rupturing at the joints.

With happiness, I suggest. With happiness. Granola happiness and pet happiness.

There are 2 truly pleased things going on in my life today– >

# 1– The pet. We have a canine! We have actually had our pup for practically a week now, and she’s not truly a young puppy, she’s an medium-old-ish pet from a rescue, however I am set on calling her a young puppy for a minimum of our very first month together. She deserves it AKA we desire it AKA who even cares tho since we are so absolutely in love with her.

A couple of nights ago we took her to the pet park and it resembled paradise in the world for her. However in fact, likewise for us, since we got a lot laughter and happiness out of seeing her dive in mud puddles, cut loose through the sand, and chase her brand-new good friends like Jesus the hooded-vest-wearing Chihuahua. I believed it would take us a minimum of a couple of months to end up being “those pet individuals” however oh no, my good friends. 2 hours into our brand-new life with the puppy and we are THERE.

# 2– This chocolate granola. It’s too apparent, however I still need to state it anyways: it’s so excellent like seriously require more nowwwwww although I simply consumed some prior to I took a seat to compose this post.

It has a good healthy base of oats, almonds, and unsweetened coconut flakes, and after that things begin to get a little bit desserty, if you can deal with that, with the addition of cocoa powder and maple syrup and coconut oil and chocolate chips melted all up into the clusters. And after that? Whatever gets sprayed with that crispy turbinado sugar and flakes of sea salt.

And After That it’s lunch break and you’re a food blog writer with remaining dishes filling your refrigerator however the only thing you can think about for lunch is fistfuls of granola right out of the container. I do not even understand, all right? Simply … leave me alone.

Really however, I’m not even overemphasizing when I state that since today, I have actually now consumed The Ultimate Chocolate Granola as 4 of my last 7 meals. It’s not like I take pride in myself, consuming those crispy chocolate clusters with chocolate chips all the time, it’s simply that I feel I require to be in advance with you about my ingrained love for things with crispy sugar and sea salt outsides.

Active Ingredients


  1. Make: Preheat the oven to 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss the oats, almonds, coconut, cocoa, salt, and 1/3 cup of the sugar in a big bowl. Blend the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla together. Reserve. Put the liquids over the dry components and stir to integrate. Spread out the granola into 2 big jelly roll pans in an even layer.
  2. Bake: for 50 minutes overall, stopping about midway through to examine the granola and shake or stir the pan if required. After 50 minutes, spray the chocolate chips over the top of the granola, go back to the oven for 5-10 minutes till chocolate chips are really soft. Sprinkle with the staying turbinado sugar and coarse sea salt to taste. The sugarcoated and salt ought to stick the beyond the chocolate chips. * YES *
  3. Shop: Let the granola represent 1-2 hours. Carefully scoop the granola into containers or an airtight container for saving. The benefit of doing this when the chocolate chips are still soft (at the 1-2 hour mark) is that it produces excellent texture once it cools– the chocolate chips will arrange of melt their method into the clusters and harden within each private granola cluster. SO GOOD. You can likewise leave the granola out over night or for a number of hours till the chocolate chips are totally cooled and solidified if you wish to maintain the shape of the private chocolate chip pieces in the granola.


The coarse sea salt and sugar mix is really crucial for the total taste and texture of this granola in my viewpoint, so attempt to utilize that crispy turbinado sugar and coarse sea salt instead of switching them for other components.

Mild handling of the granola is essential for protecting the clusters. When you eliminate it from the oven, do not stir it. If it’s not over browning throughout baking, do not stir it. The more you can leave it alone, the more it will cluster.

Note: For anybody who may be enjoying their weight or trying to find standards with part control, I discover it truly practical to divide this dish into 4 containers and after that simply psychologically remind myself that each container is 4 portions. I do not determine each time I consume it, however I do attempt to watch on just how much I’m consuming based upon that general rule. And if I wind up consuming one container as 3 portions rather of 4 … oh well. Delighted times.

A direct: tomorrow I’m going to do a correct post to present our fur infant. (UPDATE: here it is.) I’m sort of INSANELY EXCITED to share her with you, and she’s wagging her tail beside me today so I believe that implies she’s prepared for her launching as a Blog site Pet.
