Serve with yogurt and/or milk. One serving is pretty hefty for me, but it's so low in calories, you can probably afford 2 servings at one go.

Instructions Checklist

  • Mix oats, cashews, coconut, and mixed fruit together in a large bowl.

  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Stir honey into melted butter until smooth; add oats mixture and stir to coat. Sprinkle cocoa powder over the oats mixture; stir. Drizzle vanilla extract over the mixture; stir. Season mixture with a pinch of salt.

  • Spread oats mixture in a single layer onto a baking sheet; toast in preheated oven, stirring once about halfway through, until crisp, about 10 minutes.

  • Cool oats mixture to room temperature. Transfer to an airtight container, add chocolate chips, and stir.

Cook's Notes:

I kept the honey down to only 3 tablespoons, but 1/4 to 1/3 cup of honey would probably give you a much more decadent-tasting granola.

Add more oil if you wish to have crispier granola.

Came across this recipe by accident and I'm glad I did. It's not even fully cooled and everyone's digging in! Store-bought granola is so expensive and (let's face it) ingredient lists are LONG. I substituted a cup of some healthy cereal that my kids wouldn't eat for a cup of the oatmeal added peanuts rather than cashews (what I had). Great versatile recipe. Thanks for sharing with us!
