Do you have any leftover Easter chocolate eggs?
Why not melt it and use it for this delicious chocolatey granola?
300 g jumbo oats
100 g mixed nuts (hazelnuts, pecan nuts, almonds, walnuts, macadamia…whatever you fancy)
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
30 g cocoa
100 g chocolate (either dark or milk)
1/2 teaspoon salt
40 g mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, sesame…)
60 g peanut butter
3 tablespoon water
Preheat the oven at 180° C
Roughly chop the chocolate and nuts
In a large bowl mix the oat with the chopped chocolate, nuts and mixed seeds
Add salt, cinnamon, cocoa and peanut butter – stir well.
Add 2 or 3 tablespoons of water and combine the ingredients together.
Line up a baking tray with parchment paper. Add the granola and gently press down the granola with the back of a spoon or spatula.
Bake for 30 minutes and stir the mixture at the halfway baking point – be careful not to burn it.
Tips: if you don’t want the chocolate to melt (I personally love it) add the chocolate at the end once the granola is cooled.
