1/2 cupof Once Again Chocolate Hazelnut Butter
1/2cupof honeyor maple
2cupsof rolled oats
2 cupsof brown rice cerealor any cereal of your choice
1/2 cupof chopped peanutsor any nut of your choice
1/4cupof unsweetened coconut flakes
2tablespoonsof unsweetened cacao powder
In large mixing bowl add all dry ingredients and mix well. If you chose a cereal that has large pieces, first break them into smaller pieces with a rolling pin.
In medium pan over low heat add honey and Once Again Chocolate Hazelnut Butter and mix vigorously until well mixed for about 5-7 minutes. It will slightly melt and become the consistency of thin syrup.
Pour warm mixture over dry mix and mix until well coated. Distribute in cookie sheet prepared with non-stick spray. Using the back of a spatula pat down to compact granola.
Take it to a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, mixing it well half way through. Remove from oven and let it cool before breaking into pieces. Store in airtight container for up to 10 days in dry and cool place.
