Cinnamon-Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Granola

Sometimes you just want cereal or granola for breakfast/snack, but unfortunately, most of the cereals and granola you buy in stores aren't good for you and don't supply any health benefits. Well, I was craving good ole granola and decided to try making my own! I grabbed oats, banana flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, and a few other ingredients, and then I started experimenting! The result turned out perfectly; crisp, slightly sweet, and full of flavors!
This cinnamon-cranberry granola with chocolate chunk pieces is absolutely delicious! You also get a slight coconut flavor thanks to the coconut oil, which taste so delicious! Coconut oil contains fatty acids, improve cholesterol levels, and helps burn fat/boost metabolism. You will feel energized and ready to seize the day after eating this granola!

Onto the recipe!

Cinnamon-Cranberry Chocolate Chunk Granola (makes 6 cups)

  • 6 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup sunflower seed butter
  • 1 tablespoon WEDO banana flour 
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup roughly chopped dark chocolate 
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

First, stir together oats with cinnamon, salt, and banana flour. Then stir in maple syrup, coconut oil, sunflower seed butter, and dried cranberries. Spread onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for about 25  minutes, then stir and bake for another 25 until crispy.

Once the granola has cooled, break into chunky pieces. Pour into a bowl and mix with chopped dark chocolate. Serve and enjoy!
