Guilt Free Coco Pops

I started getting into the habit of making my own granola in an attempt to find a steady healthy breakfast that I could easily have every morning before work, I became obsessed with my first recipe I came up with and had it every morning for months!

I wanted to start experimenting with my granola I wanted to find something that was different and tasty but still healthy. So I started making chocolate granola and it honestly tastes like Coco pops, especially if you leave the choc granola to “rest” in your milkĀ for a couple of mins before eating it..it turns the milk into chocolate milk šŸ˜€

140g of coconut oil

  2. Put the pean cans, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chopped almonds and chia seedsĀ into a large bowl and mix together
