Chocolate Pecan Granola

When our family started changing our diet it was a huge shock to our bodies which were severely addicted to sugar.  One of the ways I appeased the need for sweets, especially chocolate, was to create a healthy go-to food for my kids - chocolate granola.

Here is how simple it is to make:

First dump all of the dry ingredients together in a roasting pan:
10 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups pecan meal
1 cup freshly ground flax seeds
6 Tablespoons cocoa powder




Mix the dry ingredients and then add in:
3/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 1/4 cup warmed honey



Mix well.  Then put into a 300 degree Fahrenheit oven to cook for 1 hour, making sure to mix every 15 minutes.



Let cool and store in an air tight container.  It will last for weeks - that is if you can keep everyone in your house from eating it for that long.

  1. Would pecan meal be simply pecans crushed fine, or is there something else in it? This looks so good I might have to try it today if I have enough coconut oil left.

  2. Yes, pecan meal is just finely crushed pecans. It is cheaper to buy them this way instead of whole plus for those fussy kids who don't like nuts they won't taste them but will still be getting all the necessary protein from them.
