Crunchy grain-free chocolate granola made with nuts, seeds, molasses, and coconut oil (or nut butter). Easy vegan, gluten-free, and paleo snacking!




  1. Combine the nuts, seeds, and coconut in a large bowl.
  2. Add the salt, cinnamon, vanilla, and cacao powder. Stir to evenly coat.
  3. Add the molasses and coconut oil or nut/seed butter. Mix until evenly coated and clumpy (hands work best, especially if using the nut/seed butter)
  4. Spread out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes at 325F. Stir, then bake for an addition 5-8 minutes watching the edges carefully to avoid burning. For big clusters, cool completely before removing from the pan.
  5. Or cook in a non-stick pan over medium heat for 10-15 minutes stirring frequently. It should look dry when it’s done. Cool in the pan or spread out on a plate/pan to allow clusters to form.
  6. Enjoy by the handful, with milk, on top of yogurt/smoothies/ice cream, etc.
  7. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. I like it best chilled!
