This delicious and crunchy refined sugar free Chocolate Granola will be a breakfast hit with the whole family and comes together so quickly. This is a satisfying nut and oat based chocolate muesli has flavours of cinnamon and chocolate with a perfect crunch from the hazelnuts, pecans and pepitas.


  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 75g pecans
  • 75g hazlenuts
  • 25g pepitas
  • 2 tbsp cacao
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut


  • Preheat your oven to 175c and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  • In a bowl add in the dry ingredients and stir the mixture until well combined.
  • Then, add in the maple syrup and olive oil and stir through again, coating the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients.
  • Next, tip the mixture on to the lined baking tray and spread the mixture evenly over the tray.
  • Bake the granola for 4 minutes then remove from the oven and stir, breaking up any clumps.
  • Stir through the shredded coconut and return to the oven to bake for another 4 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.


If you wish to make a sweeter version add 3 tbsp of maple syrup instead of 2 tbsp and bake the mixture for a further 4 minutes (8 in total) before adding the shredded coconut and baking for a further 4 minutes.
