Orange & chocolate granola with wheat sprouts

I have an incredibly delicious recipe for you… Orange and chocolate granola with wheat sprouts! Perfect as a healthy breakfast option, but I have to admit, I often eat it as a snack too 😉 The main reason why I love this recipe is because it is super healthy while it still satisfies my sweet tooth. It’s just too good! But let’s get down to business. I will explain how you make this heavenly granola!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of coconut flakes
  • 1 cup of oats
  • ½ cup of wheat sprouts (you can buy these at almost every supermarket)
  • 1 cup of pumpkin seeds
  • 1 cup of pecans, roughly chopped
  • 4 tablespoons of honey
  • 4 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ orange (grated zest and juice)
  • 1/3 cup of cacao nibs/dark chocolate chips

Let’s get baking!

First preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius. While it heats up, put all the dry ingredients in a bowl together. Take another bowl and mix the honey, melted coconut oil and the juice from the orange until it’s a paste. Pour the paste over the dry ingredients, mixing everything together so that the whole mixture is covered with it.

Place the mixture onto baking paper on a baking tray and bake it for about 25 minutes. When the granola starts to brown a little and becomes firm, it’s done. Take it out of the oven, allow it to cool a little and after you’ve tried this delicious chocolate and orange granola, store the remainders (no you should not eat everything at once) in an air-tight box. There you go, a healthy and tasty breakfast every morning! 🙂

Trust me, this recipe is super easy to make and incredibly delicious! I would love to see how yours turns out! Please tag your photos with #fitgirlcode so I can see your chocolate and orange granola 🙂

    Hoi, klein vraagje !
    Smelten de cacao nibs niet in de oven? Kan je deze dan ook gebruiken in bijvoorbeeld bananenbrood, of zullen ze daar wel smelten?
    Liefs.

      Hi Henrike!
      Nee volgens mij niet! Weet het alleen niet zeker hoor. Ik heb stukjes pure choc gebruikt, die smelten een beetje maar dat vond ik geen probleem. In een bananenbrood kun je prima cacao nibs gebruiken denk ik.
