Ingredients

  • 1 Clementine juiced - I had about 3 tbsp of juice
  • 2 tbsp Almond Butter or nut/seed butter of choice
  • 2 tbsp Cocoa Powder
  • 3 tbsp Maple Syrup or agave
  • pinch Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon optional
  • 2 cups/ 160 grams Rolled Oats
  • 1/3 cup/ 40 grams Raw Almonds roughly chopped
  • 2oz/ 60 grams Dark Chocolate roughly chopped into chunks

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 160°C/ 320°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the clementine juice, almond butter, cocoa powder, maple syrup, cinnamon and a pinch of salt.
  • Stir in the oats and almonds and mix well to combine.
  • Press the mixture onto a half sheet pan, keeping all the granola as one mass to allow clumps to form.
  • Bake for 20 minutes, breaking up the granola halfway through cooking to ensure cluster formation and even browning.
  • Leave to cool COMPLETELY on the baking tray before stirring in the chocolate chunks. Enjoy!

Notes

  • The granola can be stored in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks at room temperature.
