Choco Coco Granola

Choco Coco Granola

Most kids have a serious thing about Coco Pops, so I thought I’d try and crack the chocolate breakfast thing, and this granola is amazing and super easy to make. As a snack in a bag or on yoghurt with bananas, have it any way and know that it’s full of goodness, protein and energy. And happens to be grain free.


  • 3 tbsp Cacao Powder
  • 3 tbsp Maple Syrup
  • 3 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • Pinch Sea Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 Cup flaked almonds
  • 1/4 Cup Buckwheat Groats
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut curls
  • 1/2 Cup puffed quinoa
  • 1/2 cup quinoa flakes
  • 2 tbsp sunflower seeds
  • 2 tbsp shelled hemp seeds

In a small pan melt the coconut oil, adding the cacao powder and maple syrup to stir through until smooth. Set aside.

Pour all the dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl, and pour over the chocolate mixture adding the vanilla extract and salt. Lay on a large baking tray, so it is thinly spread.

Bake at 190 for 10 minutes before turning over with a wooden spoon. Repeat after another 10 minutes and then remove when dark brown, up to 30 minutes in total.

It will crips up as it cools. Keeps in a jar for weeks.

  1. Hi Lizzie,
    I wondered where you buy the buckwheat groats and puffed quinoa? And this might be a silly question but what are coconut curls; are they different from desiccated coconut?
    Thank you!

  2. Hello – I just made this 🙂 I wanted to ask if you cook or soak your Buckwheat groats beforehand?
