Double Chocolate Granola

Want the BEST double chocolate granola recipe? This healthy chocolate granola recipe is full of good ingredients and lots of crunchy clusters! It’s perfect over yogurt or by itself as a snack!

It’s been a while since I’ve posted a new granola recipe! I usually just make my favorites over and over but I thought it was time for a new one on the blog. Why not a super chocolatey one?! I’m always craving all the chocolate, anyway!

This double chocolate granola recipe is actually not as naughty as it might sound. It’s sweetened with honey so no refined sugars other than the chocolate chips! It’s so good on its own as a snack, or over vanilla Greek yogurt (my preferred way)!

Is this a healthy double chocolate granola recipe?

As I mentioned above, this granola is not the worst even though the title might say “double chocolate”! It’s made with coconut oil and honey and even contains chia seeds and chopped almonds.

If you want to keep this recipe fairly clean you could also leave out the extra chocolate!

This recipe is very similar to my other granola recipes including my healthy peanut butter granola and coconut pecan granola. I make them all the time!

How do you make this chocolate granola?

This granola recipe is the easiest! You’ll need:

  • large flake oats
  • chia seeds
  • salt
  • chopped almonds
  • chocolate chunks
  • coconut oil
  • honey
  • cocoa powder
  • vanilla

1. Preheat the oven to 300 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl, stir together the rolled oats, chia seeds, salt, and chopped almonds.

2. In another heat-safe bowl, microwave the coconut oil together with the honey until melted. Add the cocoa powder and vanilla and whisk until completely smooth.

3. Combine the wet ingredients with the dry and stir until the oats are totally covered in the chocolate honey mixture. Add half of the chocolate chunks.

*Note* I always add some of the chocolate in the granola mixture before baking. The chocolate will melt and when you stir it around, it helps create lots of those wonderful crunchy clusters! If you care less about the clusters you could just add the chocolate at the end, after the baking is done.

4. Spread out the granola mixture on to the prepared baking sheet. Place the pan in the preheated oven for 40 minutes, stirring the mixture every 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and allow the entire mixture to cool before adding the other half of chocolate chunks.

5. Granola can be stored in an airtight container for 1-2 weeks.

What do you serve double chocolate granola with?

I love to eat this with yogurt stirred up with vanilla protein powder for breakfast. I top it with fruit and a drizzle of honey. So good!

This recipe is so tasty you can also just munch on this granola as a snack. The only problem is that its addictive!

Can this recipe be made vegan?

If you happen to be vegan you can swap the honey for maple syrup and just be sure to use vegan chocolate chips or chunks in the recipe.

  1. Love that this granola has double the chocolate! My kids would love it! Bookmarked to make!

  2. Naughty or not, I love this. That double chocolate are the ones that got me

  3. AAARRRGGGhhhhhh1 I’m not sure I want granola that tastes like dessert. But I know this must be fantastic…

  4. This granola looks and sounds wonderful – tasty and quite decadent without being overly naughty, as you said. Perfect combo of ingredients, too (I only would have added some coconut chips for my version.)

  5. This granola is so tasty! I’ve made it twice now.

    TIP: Add egg whites to get big clusters. Today I also made a genius discovery that if you mix the chia seeds into egg whites before combining with everything else, you don’t get that seedy granola dust at the bottom of your jar!

    I also added unsweetened shredded coconut.
