Here's a recipe everyone can enjoy:
Toasted Oats Granola with roasted coconut and chocolate
2 cups Old Fashion Oats
2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup all natural, no salt added peanut butter
1/3 cup raw honey
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup dark chocolate chips
Dash sea salt
1 cup chopped almonds
1/2 cup raw crushed peanuts
2 tbsp cranberries
1/3 cup shredded coconut shredded
2 tbsp flaxseed
1/4 cup chia seeds
Preheat oven at 300F. In a small bowl, add in oats with a pinch of salt and two tbsp olive oil. Mix and place on baking pan then spread evenly. IF you're using any types of nuts, I recommend to roasted them with oats but there's no need to add oil or salt on nuts. Place in oven for about 20 mins or until the oats are golden.
In microwaveable bowl, add in peanut butter, coconut oil, and honey microwave for 45 secs then mix well.
Add mix to larger bowl then when oats and nuts are cooled add into bowl with other ingredients and mix evenly.
In a 8in square baking pan, add lining of parchment paper then add granola mix and spread evenly out on pan. Then add another parchment paper layer on top of granola and use a flat surface item to press down granola.
Once evenly pressed remove top parchment and place the pan into the oven for 25-27 mins. Use toothpick to check for readiness. If nothing sticks other than chocolate, the granola is done. Let cool for at least 30 mins (add into freezer for 10 mins for faster cooking), cut bars into small pieces then drizzle chocolate and sprinkle roasted coconut on top of granola. Tasty midday pick me up! Enjoy #foodsharingwithkim#dishesforali
