Grain-Free Chocolate Granola is a healthy and delicious snack with walnuts, pecans and pumpkin seeds.
I love this granola because it has a rich, chocolaty flavor but is not filled with sugar and other things that you don’t want. It is a healthy snack that you can enjoy without any guilt.
To Make this Chocolate Granola You Will Need:
- pumpkin seeds
- unsweetened, shredded coconut
- cacao powder
- mixing bowl
- sauce pan or small skillet
- baking sheet
- parchment paper

Begin by heating your oven to 200 degrees. Coarsely chop your pecans and walnuts.
Combine the nuts, coconut and pumpkin seeds in a mixing bowl.
In a small saucepan or skillet, melt the ghee and honey together. Whisk in the cacao powder, then stir in your vanilla and a pinch of salt.
Add that beautiful chocolate sauce into the nut mixture and stir it to combine.
Spread the granola out onto a baking sheet that is lined with parchment paper and bake it for 4 hours.
Once it has finished baking, you’ll let it cool completely. Store your granola in an airtight container.
