Dry ingredients

Wet ingredients



  1. Line a baking tray and preheat the oven to 340°F (170°C)*.
  2. Add all the dry ingredients to a food processor. Pulse to roughly chop the oats and nuts**.
  3. Remove the blades from the food processor. If the blades can't be removed, transfer the contents to a large bowl instead. Add the maple syrup, coconut oil, and vanilla and mix using a rubber spatula.
  4. Transfer the mixture to the baking tray and spread it out evenly. Let the granola bake in the oven on the centre rack for 20 - 22 minutes, stirring halfway to ensure even baking.
  5. Remove from the oven and allow the granola to cool completely. It will harden as it cools. Once completely cool, mix in the chocolate chunks, and enjoy with milk or yogurt and fresh fruit.


  • Refined coconut oil is coconut oil that doesn't smell or taste like coconuts. If you prefer a distinct coconut taste, use unrefined coconut oil instead.
  • * We used top and bottom heating (not fan-assisted/convection).
  • ** If you don't have a food processor, you can also coarsely chop the nuts and seeds with a knife.

I like how it is so indulgent but I feel healthy while eating it! 🥰 a very good- and smart! Recipe.

sydney morrison - April 28, 2024, 11:55 p.m.

So addicting and crunchy!

Carolien De Maeyer - April 24, 2024, 11:28 a.m.

Best. Granola. Ever. Don’t think I will ever buy it from a store again.

sydney morrison - April 11, 2024, 3:40 a.m.

So good with a sprinkle of maldon when you add the chocolate at the end!

Meera - March 28, 2024, 4:45 p.m.

Made this today on a whim. Love how simple the ingredients are. I didn't have maple syrup but had date syrup. It is less sweet but that's ok because it makes it even more exciting when you get a choc chunk!

PUL Team - March 29, 2024, 11:02 p.m.

So glad that you enjoyed the chocolate granola, Meera!

Eli - March 25, 2024, 6:39 p.m.

This one is my favorite! For me perfect with greek yogurt and Apple 👌🏼

Julia Hellwig - Feb. 20, 2024, 7:40 p.m.

I love this recipe. I've made it two times already and I use it as a topping for my overnight oats and porridge. It adds the perfect sweetness and crunch♥️

Dominika - Feb. 18, 2024, 4:16 p.m.

I love this recipe…I make granola once a week and also for my friends✨

PUL Team - Feb. 19, 2024, 1:02 a.m.

How kind of you to make granola for your friends, Dominika! Thanks for the lovely review :)

Michaela - Feb. 5, 2024, 4:45 p.m.

very tasty!
i have some questions:
i miss the plate methode from your website, so i can see in a circle, what is the amount of vegetables, proteins and carbs in one portion. That was so helpful.
And i would love to see the nutriens information not only for 1/2 cup, but for 100g too. because so i can compares with storebought granola and other foods

PUL Team - Feb. 5, 2024, 5:48 p.m.

Hey Michaela, we're glad that the granola was enjoyed and thanks for the requests! We've noted them down to help us improve ✨

Andreea - Feb. 3, 2024, 5:13 p.m.

I'm absolutely in love with this recipe 😍!

Donna Adkins - Feb. 3, 2024, 12:28 p.m.

Absolutely delicious, super with yoghurt and berries but equally great on its own as a snack!

Pallas - Jan. 30, 2024, 11:26 p.m.

Well, my toddler will eat practically nothing else anymore, so I guess that's as big a compliment to the recipe as I can give! We mix & match seeds/nuts to what we have & *chef's kiss*

Olivia - Dec. 22, 2023, 8:03 a.m.

Second time making this! I replace some of the nuts and seeds with what I have on hand and it comes out great every time.

PUL Team - Dec. 22, 2023, 7:44 p.m.

So glad that the granola is being enjoyed with the substitutions as well, Olivia!😃

Lara - Dec. 18, 2023, 5:01 p.m.

The greatest Granola of them all! :)

Betul - Dec. 7, 2023, 11:02 p.m.

Love this recipe, easy and delicious. It’s my go-to ❤️

Susan Schaefer - Dec. 4, 2023, 12:54 a.m.

Delicious. l am excited to make this again trying out different nuts like peanuts or pralines.

Mehek - Dec. 2, 2023, 5:22 p.m.

Hey! Can I use almond butter instead of coconut oil?

PUL Team - Dec. 3, 2023, 11:35 p.m.

Hi Mehek, the coconut oil helps the granola harden up to give nice and crunchy clusters. We'd recommend substituting it with a neutral vegetable oil, such as refined olive oil that doesn't impart the olive oil taste, rather than nut butter as we haven't had a chance to test it without oil. If you do experiment with using nut butter though, do let us know how it turns out! You may also be interested in our "healthiest ever granola" for an oil-free recipe 🤗

Mathilde Willems - Oct. 29, 2023, 5:39 p.m.

It can’t make another granola since I did this one!! So delicious!!

PUL Team - Oct. 29, 2023, 11:11 p.m.

Such a big compliment, Mathilde! We're so happy you're enjoying the double chocolate granola ☺️

Chiara Negri - Oct. 17, 2023, 8:39 p.m.

I made it today for the first time. what can I say...super delicious!! I used unrefined coconut oil and the combination with the chocolate is amazing. Thank you PUL team ❤️

PUL Team - Oct. 18, 2023, 12:07 a.m.

Hey there, Chiara, thank you for sharing your experience with the granola! We're so happy it was enjoyed 😊

Cindy A. - Oct. 14, 2023, 5:09 p.m.

I added a few Brazil nuts and hazelnuts to make up for other nuts we were out of. Next time, I would pulse those bigger ones first before adding the oats and smaller seeds and nuts just for uniformity. But hopefully next time I will have all the ingredients from the original recipe.😉 Still loved the taste. Delicious recipe! 5/5🌟✨️

PUL Team - Oct. 15, 2023, 7:57 a.m.

Ooo thanks for sharing your modifications with the granola, Cindy! Sounds lovely :D

Nadika - Sept. 11, 2023, 4:36 a.m.

This is hands down our all time favourite granola! ❤️

ala - Sept. 10, 2023, 1:33 p.m.

Hey, i don't have much maple syroup, maybe 2 tbsp. I saw in your other granola recipee you're just using sugar. How should i proceed to add 2 tbsp maple and how much sugar, please? or adjust sth else? I'd be replacing pecans for migdals, but that shouldn't matter.

PUL Team - Sept. 11, 2023, 3:02 a.m.

Hey Ala, if you only have 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and want to use some sugar, you could substitute the remaining sweetness by using about 1-3 tablespoons of granulated sugar. Sugar doesn't have the same liquid consistency as maple syrup, so it may affect the texture slightly, but it should still work well in the recipe. If you find that the granola isn't quite sweet enough, you could also serve it with a sweet base such as sweetened plant-milk or yogurt if needed too 🙂

Keala - Sept. 1, 2023, 11:56 p.m.

Super delicious. I made it without the nuts and just added some extra seeds for a friend with a nut allergy and still was yummy

Lauren - Aug. 31, 2023, 8:59 p.m.

So good! I have made this granola a few times already and I love to have it with yogurt and fruit!! I used cacao powder and it turned out amazing! It has the perfect amount of chocolate flavor without being to overpowering. I did not add the chopped chocolate because I liked the taste how it was but I am sure it would taste great with the chocolate! I love the recipes on Pick Up Limes!!

PUL Team - Aug. 31, 2023, 11:48 p.m.

Hey Lauren, aw we're so happy that the chocolate granola was enjoyed with cacao powder! Thanks for your kind words too 🥰

Vonnie - Aug. 23, 2023, 1:37 p.m.

So good ... and chocolaty. A delicious rich, chocolate nutty flavour in a granola that broke up in perfect clumps. This is going to become a favourite recipe.

Can't wait to try it with some homemade vanilla yogurt and fresh blueberries.

PUL Team - Aug. 25, 2023, 7:55 a.m.

Yayy it means so much that the granola is being enjoyed, Vonnie! Pairing it with homemade yogurt and blueberries sounds lovely 😊

Noelle - Aug. 13, 2023, 11:10 p.m.

I love this recipe! It’s great with yogurt, or with milk as a cereal!
Feels like a chocolaty indulgence, but it’s made with healthy ingredients!

priscilla - Aug. 12, 2023, 11:44 a.m.

My son loves it🥣

Luci - Aug. 8, 2023, 9:15 p.m.

A new favorite! Totally reminiscent of a childhood favorite, too - chocolate Rice Krispies cereal 🤗!

Robyn - July 24, 2023, 2:32 p.m.

Me and my kids adore this recipe 🤩 I add dried cranberries instead of dark choc bits and just pecans instead of walnuts and the kids LOVE the combination, thank you 💚

PUL Team - July 26, 2023, 11:04 p.m.

Mmm sounds like a delicious combo, Robyn - so glad the granola is being enjoyed!

Andrea Zimmerman - July 17, 2023, 10:27 p.m.

Usually not excited for breakfast, but this granola is game changing! Love it!! Thanks PUL!

PUL Team - July 18, 2023, 3:13 a.m.

Thank YOU, Andrea! We're so thrilled to hear 🤗

M - July 6, 2023, 3:25 p.m.

This is a very wholesome and tasty granola that I add to my smoothie daily. It’s a staple every week

Lara - July 5, 2023, 6:40 p.m.

Sophie Charpentier - July 2, 2023, 10:32 a.m.

Everyone in the family loved it!

Anna - June 30, 2023, 10:41 p.m.

Perfect for those who like sweet granola, one of my favorite recipes, i usually eat it with coconut yoghurt and berries😊

ashley - June 29, 2023, 3:35 a.m.

Lara - June 8, 2023, 4:42 p.m.

This is Amazing! The whole house smelled soooo good!

Baba - May 16, 2023, 3:49 p.m.

Hi, I have just olive oil at home and I think this would not taste that good. Can I use instead of the oil nutbutter? And can I reduce the maple sirup? Can‘t it burn or something like that?
Thank you

PUL Team - May 17, 2023, 5:01 a.m.

Hey there, Baba, thanks for the question! We haven't tested it out in this recipe but perhaps you could use some nut butter with pureed dates in place of the oil and sugar. We use a similar base with tahini and dates in our healthiest ever granola recipe here:… 😊

Baba - May 17, 2023, 4:36 p.m.

Ok, thanks a lot for reply. I will give it a try!

Janani - May 12, 2023, 9:54 p.m.

Hey Sadia and Team,
I stumbled upon a granola recipe accidentally and ever since there's no going back ❤️ we batch prep all your granola recipes one after the other and they are fab.

This particular one is my all time fav. I tried making a less chocolatey version with half the quantity of cocoa powder (no dark chocolate) and half the maple syrup. This is still amazing 😍

Thank you so much 😊

PUL Team - May 13, 2023, 12:23 a.m.

Awe it means so much, Janani! Thanks for sharing your experience with the granola 😊

Alexandra Holmstrom - May 11, 2023, 2:42 a.m.

This is our family absolute favorite granola. Make it almost every weekend. It’s addictively delicious!

PUL Team - May 11, 2023, 3:33 a.m.

Thank you, Alexandra - we're so thrilled to hear 🤗

Georgiana - May 9, 2023, 11:19 a.m.

Forgot to rate it before :)

Georgiana - May 9, 2023, 11:18 a.m.

Tried it a while ago and it is sooo good. My boyfriend eats it like a snack out of the jar.
Sorry if this was already asked: What do you think of cashews instead of pecans? Thank you!

PUL Team - May 9, 2023, 4:22 p.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, Georgiana! Cashews work wonderfully in this one 😃

Priya - April 18, 2023, 8:12 p.m.

Hey, can I use sunflower or avocado oil instead of the coconut oil ?

PUL Team - April 18, 2023, 11:43 p.m.

Hey Priya, the refined coconut oil is more neutral in taste and helps promote a crunchy granola texture. You can use sunflower or avocado oil instead if you'd like, but the granola likely won't form as many crunchy clusters and may have a more savoury rather than sweet taste. We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try 🤗

Livia - April 12, 2023, 4:15 p.m.

Best granola recipe I've ever made! I always make my friends a portion for their birthdays - everyone always loves it!

PUL Team - April 13, 2023, 12:34 a.m.

So kind of you to share it with friends, Livia - thank you 😃

Veda - March 23, 2023, 4:05 a.m.

This is SO freaking delicious! I made a batch and have been enjoying it with almond milk and fresh blueberries every morning. Such a good way to get your nuts and seeds in! It kind of reminds me of rice crispies a little bit - thoughts on adding puffed rice to give it a bit of a crunch?

PUL Team - March 23, 2023, 3:05 p.m.

Hey Veda, mmm that sounds like a delicious addition! Happy cooking 🤗

Sid - March 20, 2023, 9:32 p.m.

Love it !!

Stephanie S. - March 19, 2023, 10:53 p.m.

SO YUMMY!!! I just made a batch for this week for breakfasts. I can't wait to have it tomorrow morning on my yogurt with some strawberries and blueberries! I don't think it even needs the extra chocolate - but I'll try it to see. Very easy to make and was able to do other food prep while it was baking and cooling. I'll definitely be making this one again!

PUL Team - March 20, 2023, 3:51 a.m.

So happy to hear, Stephanie, we hope you love your breakfast tomorrow 😃

J - March 15, 2023, 5:14 p.m.

Loved it. So easy to make, was able to make this with everything I already had in hand in the pantry.

Shruti - March 13, 2023, 4:22 a.m.

If you don't like to eat your yogurt plain or want to replace cereal with a more nutritious choice of grains, this is def the one recipe to go for. I have tried variations of this recipe and thee exact same one too and it always comes out so light, crunch, and chocolaty. I have made this enough times and you really cannot go wrong with any of PUL's granola recipes. It's also a very quick recipe with minimal cleanup and simple pantry ingredients. MUST TRYY!!

PUL Team - March 13, 2023, 6:03 a.m.

Aw the glowing review means so much, Shruti, thank you 🥰

Sara - March 12, 2023, 10:04 p.m.

This is an incredibly delicious and easy recipe to make with just pantry staples. It's great for breakfast, and also works for a tasty dessert in a pinch! Thanks so much for sharing!

PUL Team - March 13, 2023, 6 a.m.

Thank you for the kind words, Sara!

Nikki - March 6, 2023, 4:02 p.m.

Hey! Love your page and the videos are a delight to watch :)
I want to try this recipe but exclude coconut and have just one of nut & seed (almonds & sunflower seeds). Was wondering if changing a few ingredients will require alterations in the proportions of oil / sweetener / cacao etc?

Also, if you can bear with me on a baking-specific query.. I've a 57% dark BAKING chocolate bar at home. I don't want to sprinkle chocolate chunks at the end & rather have it coated. To still make it double choc granola, is it ok to use chopped pieces of this bar with cacao in the baking process? While I've seen people put chocolate chips & cocoa powder, I'm not sure of the usage of baking chocolate in granola. Would be great to receive some guidance. Thanks!

PUL Team - March 7, 2023, 2:31 p.m.

Hey Nikki, the shredded coconut adds a touch of sweetness so if you like your granola on the sweeter side and plan to omit it, you might want to add extra sweetener. We haven't baked this recipe with chocolate before and suspect it could burn. One alternative approach we've seen is to bake the granola, let it cool completely, coat it in chocolate, and then chill it in the fridge overnight😊

Elena - March 4, 2023, 8:17 a.m.

so good and easy to make! I prepare it every week :) I put carob flour instead of cacao powder and its still delicious! thank you for this recipe!

PUL Team - March 5, 2023, 8:38 p.m.

Thanks for sharing your experience with the granola, Elena!

Christina - Feb. 20, 2023, 7:12 p.m.


Vid - Feb. 10, 2023, 12:56 a.m.

One of my most favorite recipe of yours. ❤️ Tried this recipe once and it's become my husband's favorite breakfast granola. Its immensely Chocolaty!! We make it almost every month now! Thank you for so many tasty and easy recipes😁 Btw, Congrats on your wedding!

PUL Team - Feb. 10, 2023, 7:02 a.m.

Awe thank you so much, Vid 🙂💛

Jess - Jan. 23, 2023, 11:28 a.m.

So delicious! Not too sweet and so wholesome with the nuts and seeds. Reminds me of cocoa puffs in a way :) Will be making again!

PUL Team - Jan. 23, 2023, 5:08 p.m.

So thrilled it was enjoyed, Jess, it means so much!

Stephanie S. - March 19, 2023, 10:56 p.m.

Reminded me of Cocoa Puffs, too! :) I told my husband - tastes like healthy Cocoa Puffs.

Martunia - Jan. 20, 2023, 10:40 a.m.

Made this one last night and this morning I had the granola with some pomegranate seeds and coconut yogurt. It was really good! Next time instead of chopped chocolate I'll add in some chocolate-coated raisins.

PUL Team - Jan. 20, 2023, 10:20 p.m.

Mmm sounds lovely, Martunia, thanks for taking the time to share!

Merv - Jan. 1, 2023, 11:06 p.m.

Super good, Any recommendations on how to get more clusters?

Added coco nibs and some non-crystallized ginger. Added some non-dairy mini chips to try get it to stick together .

Looking forward to the app!

PUL Team - Jan. 1, 2023, 11:23 p.m.

I'm so glad you enjoyed it Merv! It's usually the sugar that crystallizes and helps the granola cluster. Our granola recipes are lower in sugar than most granola recipes, but if you want clusters, there are 2 ways to make this happen: 1) add more maple syrup, 2) stir less. Stir up until the halfway point, then pack it down with a spatula and avoid stirring again until it's done. I hope this helps!

Alexandra - Dec. 31, 2022, 5:21 p.m.

Our favorite granola so far!!!

Bee - Dec. 28, 2022, 6:07 p.m.

Hello ☺️
Just wondering if I can substitute the coconut oil for melted margarine instead, as this is all I have in the house after Christmas! 😆
Thank you.

PUL Team - Dec. 30, 2022, 7:02 a.m.

Hey Bee, yes you can - it just may impact the taste of the granola slightly, especially if it's salted. Vegetable oil will also do as a substitute if you have that on hand. Happy holidays 🤗

Madison - Dec. 13, 2022, 2:54 a.m.

Wow, this granola is absolutely amazing!! I made it for the first time last week, and I've already made three more batches. It simply can't stay on the counter in my household. Paired with bananas, blueberries and milk, it is my new favorite midnight snack, and the chocolate perfectly quenches my sweet tooth. Thank you for this recipe!

PUL Team - Dec. 13, 2022, 6:44 a.m.

Aw we're so glad the granola is being enjoyed, Madison, thank you!

Elise - Nov. 4, 2022, 10:12 p.m.

So delicious, I want to try making it again in a food processor, I used a hand held blender and it made it a little too fine for me and not that crunchy/chunky, but the flavor was fantastic, my boyfriend loved it too! Thank you for all the work you do <3

PUL Team - Nov. 5, 2022, 12:13 a.m.

It means so much, Elise, thank you! Happy cooking 🤗

Cecilia Gustavsson - Sept. 25, 2022, 3:15 p.m.

Best granola recipe I've ever tried. I make this every time I make granola now! So delicious!:D

PUL Team - Sept. 25, 2022, 5:28 p.m.

It means so much, Cecilia, thank you 😃

Caroline - Sept. 18, 2022, 6:21 p.m.

I like to buy a mix of nuts and raisins for a snack while studying but I sometimes get bored of how plain it is and was wondering if I could also use that to make this granola by simply adding some of the other ingredients. If my mix has raisins though, should I leave them out and add them only at the end along with the chocolate or can they also be baked? Thank you for your answer!

PUL Team - Sept. 19, 2022, 4:30 a.m.

Hey there, Caroline, what a lovely study snack! To avoid the raisins getting hard in the oven, it may be easiest to stir them in at the end when you've removed the granola from the oven to cool. If you'd like to experiment though, soaking the raisins in water or lowering the oven temperature may help avoid them from drying out. We hope you enjoy the recipe if you're able to give it a try🙂

Caroline - Sept. 20, 2022, 2:29 p.m.

Thank you for your reply! I picked them out of the mix and added them at the end along with the chocolate. I love the result! This is such a game changer for me as nuts are usually pricier but mixes with dried fruits can be found for much more reasonable prices in Germany and it's the perfect portion for this recipe! This will definitely become a staple for me :)

Stephanie - Sept. 6, 2022, 7:25 a.m.

This is the best homemade granola I have ever made! :)
My husband loves it, it is not as sweet as storebought, you are the one who gets to decide what and how much of it it is in. This is at least 5th time I am preparing a big batch :)
I am a big fan of yours ;-) btw all the best to your wedding be happy and do not stop cooking for us please :)

PUL Team - Sept. 7, 2022, 8 a.m.

Oh, Stephanie, you're too kind! Thank you for the very kind words and support - it means soo much 💛

Irene - Sept. 2, 2022, 9:42 a.m.

This is simply the best granola, crunchy, not too sweet, healthy ….
So much better than any store bought product with loads of sugar

Lisa - Aug. 27, 2022, 5:46 p.m.

The best home made granola recipe I have tried so far! Easy to make and incredibly flavouroul. I fear that I am going to have to make this every week from now on…

PUL Team - Aug. 28, 2022, 7:59 p.m.

A huge compliment, Lisa! So glad the granola was enjoyed 🤗

Suzanne - Aug. 8, 2022, 4:37 p.m.

One of our go-to granola recipes (the other being Pick Up Limes' Healthiest Ever Granola!) - perfect, not too sweet, works brilliantly with oat yoghurt. Thanks Pick Up Limes!

PUL Team - Aug. 10, 2022, 8:13 a.m.

We appreciate the kind words so much! Thank YOU, Suzanne 😊

mimi5025 - Aug. 4, 2022, 12:26 p.m.

Its so good! My bf didn't know what granola was and when I made a massive batch of this he was so impressed how we can make a whole bag and put it on everything(like chia pudding). He especially likes it with raspberries and is now a big fan of you.

PUL Team - Aug. 4, 2022, 3:53 p.m.

Woohoo! It means so much that the granola is being enjoyed,mimi5025, thank you :)

Paridhi - July 4, 2022, 1:59 p.m.

Make this every week. So good!

Fransisca Badenhorst - July 3, 2022, 4:02 p.m.

Absolutely loved this breakfast. Gave it to friends, and they did not believe it could be vegan. I am inspired by your blog and love of food. I am not vegan or vegetarian but try to make at least 1 meal per day vegan and 1 vegetarian.

PUL Team - July 4, 2022, 6:39 p.m.

Oh so lovely to hear, Fransisca, it means so much! We appreciate the kind words and support 🥰

Kelli - June 19, 2022, 4:48 p.m.

Quick, simple and delicious!

Helga - June 10, 2022, 3:37 a.m.

Love this granola recipe.

Erica - June 9, 2022, 7:23 p.m.

Yum!! Bring on the chocolate for breakfast! I actually leave out the chocolate chunks at the end and it's still amazing.

PUL Team - June 10, 2022, 11:05 p.m.

Hey Erica! Thank you for taking the tome to share your experience with the granola :)

Sandra - June 8, 2022, 4:36 p.m.

This is the best granola ever 😍 we really love it. I made it the second time and I swear from now on we will never run out of it 😊

PUL Team - June 8, 2022, 5:38 p.m.

Aw a massive compliment, Sandra - thank you 🤗

AL - June 8, 2022, 6:41 a.m.

We love this Granola soooooo much!
I make it for my family now the 3rd time. The first time I baked by mistake the choco chips that should be added at the end with the granola and to be honest, I like this version even more, it has a stronger flavour with the milk. It is more wet after baking but after drying it is easy to store.
It is definitely a must DO and it will be a regular breakfast/snack option for us!

Thank you so much for this amazing recipe!

PUL Team - June 8, 2022, 5:32 p.m.

Ooo the chocolate sounds lovely, AL, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with it!

Caro - May 21, 2022, 11:40 a.m.

As a chocaholic I always bought granola from the store, feeling bad because I knew how much sugar there is in the store-bought stuff. Ever since I found this recipe, I have not bought a single package of granola, nor have I had a bad feeling because I can control how much sugar there is in here :)

PUL Team - May 23, 2022, 2:40 a.m.

We're so glad the granola is being enjoyed, Caro, thank you 😃

Ari - May 17, 2022, 9:40 a.m.

Like you said… Never buying store bought again! Thank you soo much for your Great work!

PUL Team - May 18, 2022, 3:57 a.m.

Thank you, Ari, it means so much 🙂

Lilly - April 28, 2022, 4:27 p.m.

I have tried two of your granola recipes. Both were absolutely lovely! I enjoyed the chocolate granola with some greek yogurt, blueberries and strawberries.

PUL Team - April 29, 2022, 7:01 p.m.

So happy to hear, Lilly, and sounds delicious!

Lizanne - April 24, 2022, 9:21 p.m.

I have made this granola four times now. The only time it didn’t work perfectly was the first time, when I didn’t trust how long to cook it and I overcooked it by a few minutes and it had a slightly burned taste (which I still liked and enjoyed)! It really does crunch up as it cools, so if it feels a bit moist when you take it out of the oven, have faith!
If I don’t have pumpkin seeds, I’ll substitute almonds, if I don’t have pecans, I’ll substitute pistachios - it is a very flexible and forgiving recipe.
I’ve also been playing around with how much maple syrup and oil to put in, as I’m trying to consume less each day. Each time I lessen the amount, the granola is still fantastic! Thank you for such a fun breakfast topping/dessert additive/snack!

PUL Team - April 25, 2022, 4:48 a.m.

Love all the substitutions, Lizanne, we're so glad the granola is being enjoyed 😃

Luise - March 27, 2022, 8:51 p.m.

I love this granola recipe ❤

Megumi - March 19, 2022, 4:11 a.m.

Made this hundreds of times. One of my favorite recipes from your YouTube and blog!
Especially my kids love it. Thanks for sharing a wonderful granola recipe!

PUL Team - March 19, 2022, 7:58 p.m.

Awe thank you, Megumi! We're so thrilled the granola is being enjoyed 🥰

Jane - March 11, 2022, 5:34 a.m.

I absolutely love this chocolate granola!!! I make it all the time, it is my favorite snack! 💕

PUL Team - March 12, 2022, 4:23 p.m.

We appreciate it so much, Jane, thank you!

Clara - Feb. 28, 2022, 8:37 a.m.

I sadly don't always take time to make my own granola but when I do, I make this recipe ! Easy, fast and suuuper delicious ! But what do you expect with double chocolate :))

PUL Team - Feb. 28, 2022, 8:20 p.m.

Can't go wrong with chocolate, Clara 😛 Enjoy the granola!

Josie - Feb. 20, 2022, 10:37 p.m.

Spontaneously decided to make this today and will definitely be making it again! Super quick and easy and, most importantly, delicious!

PUL Team - Feb. 20, 2022, 11:19 p.m.

Woop woop! So happy the granola was enjoyed, Josie ✨

Annelies - Feb. 11, 2022, 2:55 p.m.

Been making this. We don’t use our storebought cruesli anymore. This is so easy and yummi!

PUL Team - Feb. 11, 2022, 5:30 p.m.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with it, Annelies!

May - Feb. 11, 2022, 7:43 a.m.

Best granola recipe I’ve made so far! So delightful to have for breakfast

PUL Team - Feb. 11, 2022, 5:03 p.m.

We're so honoured to hear, May, thank you!

May - March 10, 2022, 6:41 a.m.

I tried changing it up by replacing the cacao powder with 1 tbsp matcha powder (along with some other modifications that I thought would suit the matcha like changing the nuts and seeds and reducing the maple syrup). Not as delicious as the chocolate granola but still works!

Anup Nayak - Feb. 7, 2022, 5:26 p.m.

Hello Sadia,

Lefki - Jan. 22, 2022, 10:30 a.m.

Still the only granola we eat in our house!!!! My kids are crazy for it and so am I!! Best recipe I have ever tried!!!

PUL Team - Jan. 23, 2022, 8:02 p.m.

Such a massive compliment, Lefki, it means so much!

Chloe - Jan. 12, 2022, 4:23 p.m.

I added crainsins instead of the dark chocolate bar because I ate my chocolate bar 😜 Very yummy recipe! Kitchen smells delightful

PUL Team - Jan. 12, 2022, 9:13 p.m.

A lovely substitute, Chloe, thanks for sharing 😃

Canan - Jan. 12, 2022, 9:54 a.m.

Dear all,

112 g) raw hazelnuts (crashed by hand)
⅓ cup (27 g) cocoa powder

½ tsp salt
½ cup (120 mL) maple syrup

Venya - Jan. 4, 2022, 5:43 p.m.

Love the chocolate granola

Sue-Ellen - Dec. 15, 2021, 9:57 p.m.

Just delicious! I'm a chocolate lover so this satisfied by sweet tooth and some. I ate this for breakfast, snack time and dessert!

PUL Team - Dec. 16, 2021, 4:52 p.m.

So glad it's being enjoyed, Sue-Ellen!

Newbie_Rookie_00 - Nov. 18, 2021, 5:08 a.m.

Bam! Bam! Bam!
So enjoyed this recipe! I don't know if it's suppose to have a noticeably sweet and salty flavor but I'm digging it.
Bless you guys!


PUL Team - Nov. 19, 2021, 1:53 a.m.

Hey there, L, this one doesn't tend to be salty usually. Perhaps there might have been salt on the nuts or dark chocolate? We're so happy the recipe was enjoyed in any case 😊

Filiz - Nov. 11, 2021, 7:49 p.m.

It is not easy to cook vegan, but you Show really easy and delicious meals. Thank you

PUL Team - Nov. 12, 2021, 4:37 a.m.

This means so much, Filiz, thank you for being here 🤩

Anna - Nov. 9, 2021, 7 p.m.

I just made this during a mental health day and let me tell you- this granola is an absolute dream! VERY flexible recipe in that you can totally substitute nuts/seeds in the recipe for whatever you have on hand. I didn't have pumpkin or sunflower seeds, so I just put pecans and almonds in. I ran out of maple syrup mid-recipe, so I used honey for the rest. Since my oven isn't super trustworthy, I ended up baking at a lower temperature for much longer (275*F @ about 1 hour). Putting that into consideration, I didn't add the nuts until about halfway to 2/3 through. Will absolutely be making this recipe again! I've already shared it with friends!

PUL Team - Nov. 10, 2021, 1:58 a.m.

Aw we're so thrilled the granola was enjoyed and you were able to take some time for your mental health, Anna! Wishing you an abundance of health and wellness ✨

Lisa O. - Nov. 7, 2021, 11:51 p.m.

I made this recipe not fully comprehending how delicious and addictive it would be! I think I ate the whole thing.

Louise Magnusson🇸🇪 - Oct. 29, 2021, 7:49 a.m.

Super tasty and a winner for all chocolate lovers🏆
I was a bit sceptical about putting so much cacao powder in the oven: I thought it might get too roasted/burnt and consequently bitter. I was so wrong 😌
Lovely balance between cacao and maple syrup, and I prefer to use 100 % chocolate couverture drops as I don’t want the granola to be sugary. Perfect crunch from all the nuts and seeds. I love walnuts and pecans, but I can imagine that a substitution with either almonds or hazelnuts works well here!
Once again, your granolas are amazing toppings for smoothie bowls. I’ve tried this one with Ruby green smoothie and I’ll try it with the Immune booster smoothie. The earthy mellow taste goes so well with the chocolate😋

PUL Team - Oct. 31, 2021, 5:10 p.m.

You're much too kind, Louise! We're so happy the cacao powder was a pleasant surprise and thanks a bunch for sharing your experience with the granola ✨

Sara G. - Oct. 10, 2021, 10:53 p.m.

This granola is ridiculously good! Unfortunately, I didn't have sunflower seeds or pecans so I subbed with hazelnuts and almonds. It still tasted great, but I'm sure it'll be even better with the nuts listed in the recipe. I'll definitely be making this one again! Thank you so much for all the fantastic recipes you put out!!

PUL Team - Oct. 11, 2021, 2:01 a.m.

Such lovely substitutions, Sara, and we're so happy the granola was enjoyed!

Nada - Oct. 3, 2021, 3:12 p.m.

Hi theereee! I love you energy and recipes. Just to let you know, I've tried this granola recipe about 6 months ago and it became an all-time-favorite for my family. It's particularly helped us introduced a healthy option to my brother's breakfast menu. Continue what you do, hope we put a smile our your face(s). Sending love and energy from Morocco!

PUL Team - Oct. 3, 2021, 7:27 p.m.

Aw, Nada, we're smiling from ear to ear! So happy the granola is being enjoyed. Hugs to Morocco🤗

Zoe - Sept. 30, 2021, 8:13 p.m.

I love cereal for dessert so just decided to make this…. And wow! Great over coconut yogurt with berries. I stewed some cherries and topped it with this! Heaven! Thank you, Saadia and PUL team. Another to add to the dozens of your recipes that are in quick rotation in my now… heavenly… kitchen.

PUL Team - Oct. 1, 2021, 6:43 p.m.

Oh, Zoe, thank YOU for the kind words and for being here. We're so grateful PUL recipes are being enjoyed 🤗

Katy - Sept. 21, 2021, 9:48 a.m.

I made this granola last night to enjoy it this morning and it came out absolutely delicious! I used vegetable oil instead of coconut oil, left out the vanilla extract, and used milk choc chunks :) Had it with coconut yogurt, some kiwi, and blueberries *_* Lovely crispiness, perfect for a chocolate lover like me, and I made a whole jar that will last me around 3-4 weeks! Thank you so much <3

PUL Team - Sept. 22, 2021, 4:33 a.m.

Thanks for sharing your experience with this one, Katy! It's so appreciated ☺️

Kelsey - Sept. 19, 2021, 4:33 a.m.

Pretty simple to make and very delicious, I found it to be a little bit too sweet but when served with natural coconut yoghurt the sweetness was balanced out well. Thank you for the recipe!

PUL Team - Sept. 20, 2021, 3:55 p.m.

Thank you for sharing your experience with this one, Kelsey, we're glad it was enjoyed with yogurt! Feel free to reduce the maple syrup or cocoa powder if you're interested and plan to give the recipe another try in the future☺️

Marina - Sept. 15, 2021, 7:35 p.m.

It's delicious, thank you! I made it choc-orange by adding orange extract instead of vanilla and used hazelnuts instead of pecans. Really crunchy and perfect flavour. What do you think about using applesauce in place of maple syrup? Would appreciate your opinion. Thanks again Marina

PUL Team - Sept. 16, 2021, 2:34 a.m.

Aw you're too kind, Marina, thank you so much for the lovely review! We haven't tested it out with applesauce in place with the syrup so we can't say for certain. The maple syrup helps add a delicious sweetness and crispiness that applesauce may not provide. Perhaps starting with half maple syrup and half apple sauce or trying with a smaller batch would be a good test. Do let us know if you experiment with it!

Marina - Sept. 16, 2021, 1:39 p.m.

OK, thank you! I will update on the next batch and try as suggested half-half! Thank you for your response, much appreciated (long time follower here at least before 50K on YT!). Happy to see PUL growth, success. Much appreciation, Marina

PUL Team - Sept. 16, 2021, 4:55 p.m.

Aw thanks a bunch for being here! We're so grateful to have you in the PUL community, Marina 🤗

Lea - Jan. 8, 2022, 12:44 a.m.

In the past I have subbed apple juice for 1/2 of the oi, turned out fine....

Ariel - Sept. 13, 2021, 2:48 p.m.

This granola is so good I wanted to eat it every day! I'm definitely making it again!

SRT - Sept. 12, 2021, 3:50 p.m.

I’ve been making this granola for the past months and I must say: I’ve gotten my mom in love with this more than myself😅. iT is soo delciousss. I love it with plant milk!!

PUL Team - Sept. 12, 2021, 8:21 p.m.

We're so glad you and your mom are enjoying the granola, SRT! We love it with plant milk too 🤗

Flore - Sept. 10, 2021, 9:06 p.m.

This became my go-to breakfast when I'm craving some chocolate in the morning!

Em - Aug. 31, 2021, 10:53 p.m.

This is now my go-to breakfast with berries and Greek style coconut yoghurt, so easy to make and perfect for a chocolate lover like me

PUL Team - Sept. 1, 2021, 2:41 a.m.

Aw we're so honoured, Em! So happy the granola is being enjoyed 🤗

Kim - Aug. 17, 2021, 2:25 p.m.

This recipe is amazing. Super easy to make and very satisfying.

Kiren - Aug. 17, 2021, 12:50 a.m.

This will be my go to granola recipe, I loved it and it was easy to make. I loved it with almond milk, over some overnight oats but my favorite is with plain coconut yogurt and chopped strawberries. Delicious!

PUL Team - Aug. 18, 2021, 12:36 a.m.

Mmm sounds so delicious, Kiren, thank you!

Lisa - Aug. 13, 2021, 10:10 p.m.

I just made it for the second time and what can I say: it's absolutely scrumptious! I love it in the morning over some yoghurt and fruit. :)
Also, can I just say that the new website is just bloody amazing?! Good job Robin and PUL team. Especially the feature where you can enter which ingredients you want to use is so damn helpful!

PUL Team - Aug. 14, 2021, 5:47 p.m.

Woohoo! So glad you're enjoying the new website and recipes, Lisa - it means so much ✨🥰

Nia Euodia - Aug. 12, 2021, 3:53 p.m.

I mixed this recipe with the healthy granola one because of the ingredients that I had. And it was so good to eat with almond milk, or as bread topping. LOVING IT! Totally delicious. The tick feature is also very helpful because i'm such a random person and cant figure out which one's not prepared yet. I couldnt eat coconut milk so I havent found any vegan yogurt that would suit my stomach so far. Thanks Sadia & PUL team ! GREAT WEBSITE BTW

PUL Team - Aug. 12, 2021, 4:30 p.m.

Oh, Nia, it means so much to hear your very kind words! We're so happy you're enjoying the new website 😃 We enjoy soy, oat, or nut-based yogurts (such as almond) occasionally which may be ones to look out for depending on where home is for you 🤗

Anna . P - Aug. 9, 2021, 12:36 p.m.

Mmm, delicious! Even whithout the chochlate chips that I forgot to buy and add... ;)
My favorite granola for weekend breakfast. Will do more of it when it's finished.

Gabriela - Aug. 6, 2021, 5:51 p.m.

Made a half batch of this recipe for the first time in case I didn’t like it. But oh my, this recipe was so delicious and cluster-ey due to the pulsing of the ingredients in the food processor. I added the chocolate in when the granola was almost cooled but still a little bit warm, so it would melt a little, and it is divine. My family loved it too, and my mom can’t stop eating it! 10/10 recommend! Love PUL and thanks so much to Sadia for building such a positive and encouraging atmosphere around food ❤️

PUL Team - Aug. 7, 2021, 2:49 a.m.

Oooh love the idea of adding chocolate when the granola is a bit warm! Thank you, Gabriela, for the very kind words and support. We're so grateful to have you in the PUL family 💚

Emma - Aug. 5, 2021, 9:43 p.m.

First of all: Great recipe, very inspiring and uplifting blog/channel!

I tried this recipe with hazelnut instead of walnuts and with a pinch of cardamom, I also added a pinch of sea salt after baking. The success was a fact and this granola will from now on always be in my pantry. (And most likely always on its way to finish because my whole family loved it) so thank you for giving me a recipe that can soothe my cravings for chocolate crunchy deliciousness.
Wish you all the best!

PUL Team - Aug. 6, 2021, 1:39 a.m.

Hi Emma! Thanks a bunch for the kind words and for being here. It means so much 🥰 so glad you're enjoying this one!

Sarah - Aug. 2, 2021, 1:28 a.m.

First time trying this recipe and it's absolutely delicious! I'm always on the look out for granola recipes to have on hand for a quick breakfast. This one's perfect over yogurt and strawberries from the garden. Thanks Sadia! 💛

PUL Team - Aug. 4, 2021, 7:16 a.m.

Mmm sounds so yummy! Really glad you're enjoying the granola, Sarah :D

Kirat - Aug. 1, 2021, 4:20 a.m.

Looks lovely. Can I use honey instead of maple syrup?

PUL Team - Aug. 3, 2021, 9:59 p.m.

Hey there, Kirat! Thanks for the question. Since we only use plant-based products here at PUL we haven't tested it out, but we hope you enjoy the granola if you're able to give it a try ☺️

Anna . P - Aug. 9, 2021, 12:38 p.m.

I did it with honey since that was what I had at home - works great, taste great!

Kirat - Aug. 12, 2021, 4:02 a.m.

oh thanks so much Anna. Great to know. Did you pretty much use the same amount of honey as the recommended maple syrup quantity? Or probably les- cuz honey happens to be much more dense.

Natacha - July 31, 2021, 3:36 p.m.

Since I discovered your granola recipes I can't stop making them! They're so delicious, super healthy and way cheaper then the one's you can find in stores! Thank you so much Sadia 💜

Alexandra - July 30, 2021, 9:54 a.m.

This was my first attempt to make granola and it turned out great. Thank you for the recipe! Tried it with yogurt and berries, absolutely loved the combination.

Kim - July 30, 2021, 6:51 a.m.

So delicious! I just made this but substituted the walnuts with almonds. I also didn't add in the chocolate at the end because I couldn't wait for the granola to cool completely to eat it. Excellent with coconut yoghurt and stewed berries :) Thanks for the recipe.

PUL Team - Aug. 1, 2021, 8:31 a.m.

Thanks for sharing your experience with this one, Kim, super helpful!

Lynda - July 28, 2021, 12:47 a.m.

This is a fantastic recipe! I am trying several of your recipes this week and I loved this one. I didn't have any walnut or pecan so I substituted them with cashews and almonds and it came out great. I will be making this again soon! Thank you for the recipe Sadia!

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 3:15 a.m.

Love the substitutions, Lynda, thanks a bunch for the review!

Imogen - July 27, 2021, 10:01 a.m.

This sounds amazing and I would love to try, but I'm in New Zealand and unfortunately oats aren't gluten free nor can you purchase any that are. I am celiac so really struggle with oat substitutes, do you have any suggestions?

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 3:20 a.m.

Hi there Imogen! Quinoa flakes may be one idea. If possible, ordering oats made in a gluten-free facility online may be another ☺️

Steph L - July 27, 2021, 5:09 a.m.

Making this for the first time as I type! Full disclosure, I was already eating the mixture before putting it in the oven- it was THAT good. I can't wait to try the finished product!

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 7:47 a.m.

So thrilled the granola is being enjoyed, Steph!

Chrizelle Oosthuizen - July 26, 2021, 8:54 p.m.

Absolutely LOVE your chocolate granola recipe! My husband and I literally eat this every morning! Thank you for sharing all your amazing recipes 💛 Love and greetings from South Africa! 🇿🇦

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 3:22 a.m.

Thank you for helping make the PUL family so special, Chrizelle, lots of love to South Africa 🥰

PUL Team - July 28, 2021, 3:24 a.m.

Thank you for helping make the PUL family so special, Chrizelle, lots of love to South Africa 🥰

Hannah - July 26, 2021, 5:44 p.m.

Super delicious and makes a ton! I switched the cocoa powder out with chocolate protein powder and it still tastes sweet and delicious, just with even more of a nutritious benefit.

Kristen - July 26, 2021, 5:07 p.m.

Best Granola ever! It’s amazing with yogurt and berries. Thank you so much. I love it!

Elinor - July 26, 2021, 2:03 a.m.

All I want to say is... why did I buy granolas all my life when I could have just made these🙄

Thank you Sadia and The PUL team for sharing this!

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 6:42 p.m.

Aw you're too sweet, Elinor, so glad you enjoyed it :D

Leanne Brown - July 25, 2021, 11:12 p.m.

I just made this recipe and my house smells amazing! It's so good and I don't have to feel guilty about having chocolate for breakfast, or lunch!

Julie - July 25, 2021, 11:05 p.m.

I did this recipe a few times and it always turned out deliciously chocolaty! If your are looking for a decadent breakfast, you should definitely give it a try!

I also made the recipe using 1 cup of puffed quinoa and 1 cup of oats (instead of 2 cups of oats) and it turned out great, light and crunchy!

Thank you for this amazing granola recipe!!

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 6:30 p.m.

Thank you, Julie, for taking the time to share the review! It's so appreciated ☺️

Celina - July 25, 2021, 7:59 p.m.

Delicious. All I can say.

nene - July 25, 2021, 7:10 p.m.

This is delicious. Best granola I have ever made. Definitely worth batch making and having in the mornings with yogurt and some fruit. A new granola staple in our household.

Ellie - July 25, 2021, 9:56 a.m.

This is delicious! I have it for breakfast sprinkled over vegan (soy) natural yoghurt and fruit (e.g. banana, peaches). I tried it to make a change from the “Healthiest ever granola” recipe, which I make all the time and also love ❤️
Love from another expat in the Netherlands :)

PUL Team - July 27, 2021, 1:08 a.m.

We're so glad you're enjoying it, Ellie, lots of love back ♥️

Jenny - July 22, 2021, 9:01 p.m.

So so good especially with a plant based milk and cut up fruit :D love this recipe and I will be making it again

Anna - July 22, 2021, 4:51 p.m.

I have made this for at least five times now and it always turns out soooo great!! Swapped out the walnuts with hazelnuts (just personal preference) and I'm seriously obsessed with it, even though I'm usually not the granola type. I've had it with soy-based vanilla pudding, vanilla soy-yoghurt (you can see a theme here), but I have to say, the best combo I've tried so far is with fresh strawberries and warm (!) oat milk.
Much love from Austria! <3

PUL Team - July 23, 2021, 2:36 a.m.

Oh, Anna, you are way too kind! Thank you for taking the time to share your review and experience with the recipe. Much love to Austria ✨

Christina - July 21, 2021, 4:51 p.m.

Hi guys!

Just made this absolutely delicious granola for the second time! Found out I just do not like when there isnt any in the cupboard!!!
Safe to say I will not allow it to run out again!!!

Thanks for everything you bring to us all xxx

Christina (Scotland :) )

PUL Team - July 22, 2021, 6:04 a.m.

We're so honoured to hear! Happy cooking, Christina, and lots of love to Scotland 🥰

Sarah - July 21, 2021, 5:02 a.m.

I've double up the receipt but I didn't notice that only last for 3weeks. I was wondering if you have tips to keep fresh for longer. Thanks for the receipts!!

PUL Team - July 22, 2021, 6:09 a.m.

Hey there, Sarah, thanks for the question1 Keeping it in a glass/airtight container in a cool and dark place is a good place to start. Perhaps storing it in a fridge may be one idea to help extend the freshness as well :)

Anna - July 19, 2021, 12:35 p.m.

hi! I loved how you make it easy and simple!
I've never tried the rolled oats before, but I really want to give it a try because lately, my body is getting intolerant to some ingredients and I think would be a good idea to eat healthier.
could you let us know which peanut butter brand do you use? because I'm from Spain, I don't think it will be easy to find one "healthy"... I found it weird that Lidl supermarkets didn't bring it!!
anyway, thank you!

It’s amazingly easy to make your own peanut butter. I prefer roasted so bake 2 cups of raw shelled nuts at 180 C for 15-20 min (I salt them at this stage cause I like to keep some to snack on). Give them a shake about half way. Then add cooled nuts to food processor and blitz until smooth. If you like it thinner add a plant based oil to your preferred consistency.

Thanks for the suggestion, Fionnuala, and for the question, Anna! We generally buy the 100% Pindakaas one from Albert Heijn. Enjoy 🙂

Libby - July 19, 2021, 11:09 a.m.

Such a wonderful recipe! I made this a few weeks ago, and actually have another batch in the oven right now! It is really good with fresh berries...but I HIGHLY recommended this with pomegranate seeds on top too.
Also discovered the little 'tick' checklist as you move along the recipe - absolutely genius Thank you Sadia!!!

PUL Team - July 20, 2021, 5:32 a.m.

Aw this means so much, Libby, pomegranate seeds sound delicious! We're so glad you're enjoying the new website as well 😃

Nahieli - July 12, 2021, 10:42 a.m.

Hi Sadia!! This granola recipe is absolutely delicious 😋 . I had never tried making granola myself, but having a chocolate granola was a good incentive. I was so happy with the result, it is much better than store-bought granola. Now I make a batch for two weeks and use it for breakfast or snacks.

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 6:19 a.m.

Eeek what a lovely compliment, Nahieli, we're so honoured! Thank you for sharing the incredible review 🙂

Debora - July 11, 2021, 10:41 a.m.

HI SADIA! How are you? I'm preparing this granola now and the smell of chocolate is all around my house!!! I already love it! :D thank you for all your amazing recipes and just to be yourself! I really admire you and wish you all the best in life!

PUL Team - July 16, 2021, 4:49 a.m.

Hey there, Debora! We're doing lovely here at PUL and we hope you enjoyed the granola 😃 Your kind words are so apprecated. Thank you for helping make our community so incredible 💝

Rachel - July 10, 2021, 3:22 a.m.

This is so good!! I’ll never buy granola again! So easy to make and I love that I know exactly what goes into it. I love having it with almond milk yogurt and topping it with strawberries!

PUL Team - July 15, 2021, 5:16 a.m.

Wow! What an incredible compliment, Rachel - so happy you're enjoying the granola 🤗

Steven - July 9, 2021, 7:36 p.m.

This is seriously the best breakfast ever! So filling and delicious!

Amelia - July 9, 2021, 9:09 a.m.

Love this granola recipe, I have made it sooo many times. So grateful for all your hard work PUL! xx

Sarah - July 9, 2021, 7:07 a.m.

I love it! Its so easy to make, even without a food processor. I am defenitly gona do it again :)

Rachel - July 9, 2021, 5:26 a.m.

This recipe is a winner! The healthy, adult alternative to cocoa puffs for breakfast.

Meghan - July 8, 2021, 9:56 p.m.

I love this recipe! It's so easy to make, and is delicious. I have been making it at the beginning of the week and keeping it in the pantry for quick breakfasts.

Double Chocolate Granola - live changing delicious granola! I have made three or even four jars already 🤍
Quick easy and soooo good! Also super idea for a home made gift!

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 10:42 p.m.

We're so glad you're enjoying the granola, Monika! 💖

Ash - July 8, 2021, 7:38 p.m.

I’m OBSESSED with this granola - I think I’ve made it every week since it was published, it’s just so good. I love that it feels light and filling at the same time, and I’ve been pairing it with fresh strawberries (they’re in season here now) and soy milk… so yummy!!🍓🍫❤️ I’m lazy and would rather chop nuts than wash my food processor so I usually go that route, and I think I prefer the bigger chunks anyways ☺️

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 7:09 p.m.

We're so glad you're enjoying the granola, Ash! Pairing it with milk and strawberries sounds delicious 😍

Canan Özcan - July 8, 2021, 7:33 p.m.

i really like all of your receipes, they are tasty and pleasing to the eyes !!! somethimes there are to many ingredients in it for my taste( i like simple food) , but your receipes are very flexible , so what i do i just skip a few items and voilaaa:D

I try to eat less animal products and your Blog helps me a lot dooing that!

PUL Team - July 10, 2021, 6:56 p.m.

We're so grateful to have you in the PUL community, Canan, thanks for the review and support 🥰

Jennifer - July 8, 2021, 5:39 p.m.

So so good! This lasted me about a week and I really enjoyed having it with some soy yogurt or as cereal. I didn't have my food processor because I was in the middle of moving, so I ended up chopping and mixing by hand. This recipe is versatile and so friendly, so use what you have! The only thing I will say is I think the cooking time might have given the nuts/seeds a bit of a burnt taste, so I would just keep an eye on your cook time and adjust as needed.

PUL Team - July 9, 2021, 8:20 p.m.

Thank you for the glowing review, Jennifer! Ovens can definitely be a bit tricky since they're all so unique. We hope your move has settled nicely✨🙂

Jonmarie Compton - July 3, 2021, 3:20 a.m.

Have made this twice thus far. So easy to make and incredibly filling.
Thank you!

Aleph - June 30, 2021, 6:21 p.m.

Sadia, I don't know how to thank you for the amazing content you create. I've made dozens of your recipes and every time I just cannot believe that I can make such delicious creations with the simplest ingredients, this recipe is an example of those...
I've been looking for some motivation to wake up earlier in the morning (your pdf guide has been so useful!). I made these. My house smells like cookies and I am literally looking forward to waking up in the morning and just to enjoy them!
I took a small bite ... the crunchiness of the pulsed grains and nuts, the richness of the cacao and the aroma/flavor of coconut shreds and coconut oil (I only had organic non-refined) make them taste like a mixture of Oreos and Bounty bars! That's genious!

PUL Team - July 1, 2021, 7:19 p.m.

Dearest Aleph, thank you so much for the incredible feedback and review! We're so grateful to have you in our PUL family. Happy cooking 🤩

Netra - June 26, 2021, 7:01 p.m.

Hi Sadia , I have been diligently following your recipes.. I am what you call a beginner into vegan cooking and I have to say your presentation skills and the way you lock your audience in making the recipes look so easy and delectable is unbeatable!! 👏👏 so you peaked my curiosity (there must be many like me) to try what vegan cooking means and tastes like! You have won me over .. I can tell you that I’m in the beginning of that journey..! I have never tasted such delicious Dark chocolate Granola .. absolutely brilliant!! I cannot believe it was so easy .. Thankyou Sadia! ❤️🤗 .. Best wishes, Netra

PUL Team - June 27, 2021, 2:39 a.m.

Oh Netra, this feedback means so much! Thank you for the very kind words. We're so honoured to be part of your plant-based journey. Wishing you an abundance of health and wellness ✨🌻

Matilda - June 22, 2021, 7:08 p.m.

This recipe looks divine and I would love to try it! However it isn't doable for someone in a country that doesn't use cups. Sure, you could buy a scale and measuring cups online but it would help if the recipes were more accessible as I'm getting nowhere trying to use different converters :(

PUL Team - June 24, 2021, 5:56 a.m.

Hi there, Matilda! Thank you for taking the time to share this feedback with us. Would you kindly share what measurements are most accessible for you? We aim to be as inclusive as possible here at PUL so we appreciate the information to help us grow and improve 😊💖

Lucy - July 1, 2021, 10:18 a.m.

Hallo, totally agree! In the EU we use mostly kilograms and grams and litres to measure our food :( your recipes look so amazing! My man wanted to switch to vegan diet but he doesn't cook and I can only cook vegetarian food, but with your recipes it is possible to finally switch to more comfortable diet we both wished to try ^ ^ thank you so much!

PUL Team - July 1, 2021, 9:12 p.m.

Hi Lucy, thank you for the reply! In the ingredients list after the cup amount, we always include the gram or (milli)litre amount in brackets. Can you kindly confirm if you're able to see this on your end? If you are and have any feedback on the way the units are provided please let us know. We're totally open to hearing any suggestions 😃 So glad to hear you're enjoying PUL content in the meantime 🙂

Alyssa - June 19, 2021, 3:55 p.m.

Hii, do you think I can get away with subbing half of the oil with nut butter?

alyssa - June 21, 2021, 2:10 a.m.

oh never mind haha I didn't see the other comment

Karen - June 16, 2021, 5:33 p.m.

Oh my heavens!!!
Thankyou for the splendid recipe! I tried this one out mere moments after watching the video. It's like a healthy chocolate fiesta in my mouth! This granola was fantastic with my morning yogurt bowl! Thanks again!

PUL Team - June 18, 2021, 1:52 a.m.

We appreciate this so much, Karen, thank you for the glowing review!

Dana Arnold - June 14, 2021, 6:36 p.m.

Dear Pick Up Limes Team,

You are absolutely wonderful to watch and learn from. I would love to see you guys make an app similar to MyFitnessPal and My Plate. It would include a place to import each part of the plate method and it would tell us if it was nutritious or not, instead of counting our calories and macros. I think it would be more inspiring if it focused on being nutritional instead of scaring us away from avocados and fruit. Thank you for your constant inspiration!

Best wishes!

PUL Team - June 15, 2021, 3:15 p.m.

Hello Dana, thank you for the kind words and suggestion! We've noted it down 🤓

Meta Božič - June 14, 2021, 1:40 p.m.

it is sooooo good :)

I - June 14, 2021, 1:09 p.m.

Can I swap the coconut oil with nut butter?

PUL Team - June 14, 2021, 3:33 p.m.

Thank you for the question, I! The coconut oil helps the granola harden up to give nice and crunchy clusters. We'd recommend substituting it with a neutral vegetable oil, such as refined olive oil that doesn't impart the olive oil taste, rather than nut butter as we haven't had a chance to test it without oil. If you do experiment with using nut butter though, do let us know how it turns out! You may also be interested in our "healthiest ever granola" for an oil-free recipe 🙂

Emmy Lou - June 14, 2021, 4:08 a.m.

Made this today and it is perfect. Not to sweet, doesn't clump, has real chocolate flavor - even liked it with just almond milk, which is pretty rare for me and granola. Definitely my new go-to granola recipe. My grocery order goofed and didn't give me the seeds I purchased so I upped the coconut, oats, and nuts to make up the difference in volume.

PUL Team - June 14, 2021, 6:43 a.m.

We're so grateful for the glowing review, Emmy, thank you! So happy to hear 😃

Mayuri Chhadva - June 13, 2021, 12:17 p.m.

Nutella taste is awesome

Peiwei - June 11, 2021, 8:31 a.m.

Probably the best recipe for a morning pick me up. Didn’t know I needed this.
Have a great day!

PUL Team - June 12, 2021, 2:25 a.m.

Such a lovely review, Peiwei, thank you! We hope you have an incredible day too ✨
