Gluten-Free Almond Joy Granola

Updated: Oct 4

Love chocolate and coconut? Then this easy, whole food and simple granola is perfect for you!




Gluten-Free Almond Joy Granola


1/2 cup Unsweetened applesauce

1/2 c up Raw Almond butter

1/2 cup Pure Maple syrup

1 tsp Vanilla

1/2 tsp Sea salt

1/4 cup Cocoa powder

3 cups GF Old Fashioned Oats

2cup + 1cup Unsweetened Flaked coconut

1 cup Slivered Almonds

1 cup Sliced Almonds or pecans

2 cups Cacao nibs or mini dark chocolate chips (opt)


Directions:


Preheat oven to 265


In a large bowl combine applesauce, almond butter, vanilla, maple syrup, salt and cocoa powder. Stir in oats, 2 cups of coconut, and almonds. Spread in a thin layer over a parchment lined baking sheet and bake 60-75 minutes stirring every 15-minutes until granola has dried out and slightly browned.


Let granola cool slightly before adding the coconut and chocolate nibs/chips and stirring well and then cooling completely. The mini chocolate chips will melt and form little irresistible clumps that I cannot stop eating!


Almond Joy Granola is easy to enjoy on it's own with a bowl of cold milk, over ice cream or yogurt!
