Coconut, currants and chocolate granola

choc coconut and currant granola

Ingredients:

6 cups old-fashioned oats

2 cup combined chopped and silvered plain almonds

1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

1/4 cup cinnamon

Combine above ingredients and bake into 3 batches on cookie sheet at 350 for 20 min-giving it a shake halfway through

When you take pan out of the oven drizzle 1 tbsp of pure honey over baked mixture and let cool.

Let cool for 10 min then add 1/3 c dried black currants, 1 heaping tbsp of the coconut flakes and 1/4 c mini choc chips to each “batch”.

Store in tight container in fridge. 1 serving is 1/4 cup which makes about 40 servings. My rule with granola making-always share with your friends and family-spread the love!!

Some facts about the black currant:
*More than 5 times the vitamin C of oranges
*As high as banana in potassium
*More calcium than any fruit
*Contain more phosphorus and potassium than any other fruit
*Second only to elderberry in iron and protein

Enjoy with milk, plain by the handful or with Greek Yogurt!! Pairs really well with Almond Breeze Coconut Almond unsweeteded almond milk! (45 calories per cup!!)
