Chocolate granola recipe

Recipe Cuisine: Continental  |  Recipe Category: Breakfast/ dinner
Prep Time10 mins    |  Cook time: 25 mins     Makes: 2 & 1/2 cups


Rolled oats – 2 cups

Cocoa powder – 3 tbsp

Almonds – 1/4 cup

Chopped dates – 1/4 cup

Raisins – 1 tbsp

Brown sugar – 1 & 1/2 tsp

Honey 3 tbsp

Salt – A pinch

Oil – 2 tbsp


  1. Chop almonds and dates. Gather all the ingredients.
  2. 1-ingredients
  3. Mix oil, cocoa powder, salt, sugar and honey in a pan. No need to heat. I heated for 10 sec, but I guess you can skip this step.
  4. 2-sauce
  5. Mix this chocolate sauce with oats, almonds, dates, Vanilla essence and raisins, in a mixing bowl.
  6. 3-mix
  7. Pre heat oven at 150 deg C. Line a baking tray with baking sheet, spread this mixture and bake for 25- 28 minutes. After 15 minutes, give the oats a mix, then after that, every 5 minutes you should give a mix for even roasting.
  8. 4 spread
  9. As it cools down, it will get crispier. Break the granola with hands and store in airtight container for 4-5 days.
  10. 5-baked


    • Use dried dates for best result not the fresh dates. You can skip the dates too.

Serve with chilled milk for breakfast. Taste great, no need to add sugar as it already has dried fruits and honey, sugar. Nuts add a great texture to the granola.
