Coconut and Chocolate Granola | GF

This coconut and chocolate granola is so good and quick to make, you won’t have to buy the expensive gluten free and vegan alternatives anymore!

About the ingredients

If you are on a gluten free diet, make sure that the oats you’re buying are made in a gluten free facility.

Flax seeds are high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acid. I use ground flax seeds because it’s easier to digest and therefore, to get all the benefits from it. You can either blend the whole seeds or buy them already ground. If you’re looking for more information about the health benefits of flax seeds, here is Healthline’ s flax seeds 101.

Like any granola, you can switch some ingredients with others, like hazelnut instead of shredded coconut or dried raspberries instead of dark chocolate chips.

Enjoy your granola with almond yogurt and fruits or sprinkled on top of a rice pudding.
