Many granola recipes lack protein, but that’s not the case with this chocolaty creation. Add a couple handfuls of chocolate chips once the granola is cooled for even more chocolate goodness.
Ingredients: Makes four 1/2-cup servings
1 tbsp. honey
3 tbsp. water
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. canola oil
1/2 tsp. coconut extract (vanilla extract will also work)
1 tbsp. cocoa powder
1/2 scoop chocolate protein powder
2 c. old fashioned oatmeal
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine honey, water, brown sugar, oil, and extract in a small bowl until mixed. Stir in cocoa powder and protein powder until fully combined. Pour chocolate mixture on top of oats and stir until oats are coated. Spread onto a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway.
