Chocolate-Covered Granola with Walnuts

This granola is the perfect decadent (yet quick) breakfast for a weekend morning.

  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp. spelt flour
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 tbsp. molasses
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease a rectangular baking sheet.
  2. Combine dry ingredients (except for chocolate chips) in a medium-size bowl. Add liquid ingredients, and stir well. Transfer to greased baking sheet, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven, stir well and bake for 10 more minutes.
  3. After removing from oven, while granola is still warm, stir in chocolate chips. Let cool completely, and store in a glass jar with a lid. Enjoy with your favorite nondairy milk.

Yield: 3 cups

I don’t have a picture of the granola (because it disappeared a few hours later!), but here’s a pic of my new (and third) puppy, Svetlana, with Hank (left) and Pavel (right) in the background.
