This GF Vegan Crunchy Chocolate Granola is so easy to make and absolutely delicious with it’s rich chocolate flavor along with it’s perfect crunchy texture!
Granola is one of those things that I love, yet almost hesitate to keep in the house. It’s so easy to reach for a handful as a snack. Then another, and another. It’s addicting! Especially when it’s perfectly flavored with just the right crunch. And this GF Vegan Crunchy Chocolate Granola is just that – it’s sweetened just right, so chocolatey, and has a lovely crispy, yet tender crunch.
If you have 30 minutes this weekend, do yourself a favor and make a batch. It’s three easy steps.
- Melt and mix coconut oil, coconut sugar, maple syrup and cacao powder
- Pour over whole oats and thoroughly mix
- Bake, cool, EAT
Whether you enjoy your granola by the handful, in yogurt, topping a smoothie, or floating in a bowl of milk – this is for you!

- Evenly spread granola out on a large baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, stir and bake additional 3-5 minutes, care to make sure it doesn’t burn. Then allow to fully cool.
