Chocolate Coconut Almond Granola

I think I need a little variety.

I posted two eggs dishes in a row and now I’m posting two coconut dishes in a row. The horror.

 In my defense can you really beat eggs and coconut? They’re like the underrated foods of the gods just waiting to excite your tastebuds into delicious heaven. Yeah. They’re that good.

Besides, they’re both pretty healthy right? Forget about the cholesterol count in eggs and the sugar content in granola and they’re practically vegetables. Ok, maybe not but they are pretty good for you. Especially if you make it at home.

What I love most about making granola at home is that you can basically throw in anything you like and make something new every batch. Raisins? Yes! M&M’s? No one’s judging! It’s granola, it’s healthy. Learn that lesson in life and you will go far my friends. For me, because I absolutely love chocolate and coconut I made this delicious creation.

Enjoy!
