'french' granola with coconut & chocolate
Recipe courtesy Orangette (This is also a wonderful Paris post--I completely share her sentiments about Chez Hanna!) This goes great with milk or on its own. Consider melting the chocolate with the granola to give you some granola clusters. :)
3 cups rolled oats
½ cup untoasted almond slivers
½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
2 tablespoons sugar
Pinch of salt
6 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
½ cup, or more, finely chopped bittersweet chocolate
Preheat the oven to 300°F. Combine & stir the oats, almonds, coconut, sugar, salt, and set aside.
In a small saucepan, heat the honey and oil over low heat, whisking occasionally, until honey is thinned out (watch out for splatter!)
Pour honey mixture over the oats and stir to combine.
Bake on a rimmed baking sheet for 10 minutes. Remove and toss to make sure granola cooks evenly and prevents from burning. Bake for another 10 minutes or until golden. Let cool.
After granola has cooled completely, add chocolate, toss, and enjoy.
