Sometimes, bigger really IS better. Introducing my Gigantic Chocolate Chunk Granola Clusters, the biggest and BEST granola that you will eat! If you've never made homemade granola before, then this recipe is your perfect introduction. It's full of nuts and seeds, and is subsequently packed with with fiber, healthy fats, and plant-based protein. Oh, and this recipe yields approximately 6-7 cups, so it's not only perfect for meal prepping, but is way cheaper than buying a traditional bag of granola! Run to your kitchen and make this recipe - I promise, you won't regret it.

Ingredients

  • 3 Cups Rolled Oats
  • 3/4 Cup Slivered Almonds
  • 1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
  • 1/4 Cup Pecans
  • 1/4 Cup Hemp Hearts
  • 1/4 Cup Sesame Seeds
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 Cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Melted Coconut Oil
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips I used a whole bag of Hu Kitchen Gems!(affiliate)

Instructions

  • Start by preheating the oven to 325 F.
  • Line a standard-sized baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Next, in a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients for the granola until fully incorporated, saving the chocolate chips for last.
  • Transfer your granola to your baking sheet and use a rubber spatula or the back of a spoon to smooth it all out. Make sure that everything is compressed together well, so that the granola forms clusters!
  • Bake for 22 minutes, making sure to flip the pan around at the 11 minute mark. This ensures that your granola cooks evenly!
  • Once done, remove your granola from the oven and let it cool COMPLETELY. This is super important, so that you will get the perfect chunks every time!
  • Once cool, break your granola into chunks, and enjoy!
