Homemade, chocolate grain-free granola that is low in sugar, low in carbs and also happens to be delicious! This decadent, but healthy chocolate granola is perfect for snacking. Paleo, vegan and gluten-free. 



  • 1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
  • 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon cacao nibs
  • 1/4 cup cacao powder
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons coconut oil
  • 23 Tablespoons brown rice syrup
  • sprinkle of granulated stevia (optional, just for extra sweetness)


  1. Preheat oven to 250°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine all ingredients in a bowl, mix thoroughly  and spread evenly on the baking sheet.
  3. Bake 30-40 minutes until crisp, rotating halfway through cooking time.
  4. Remove from oven and allow to cool, then eat while it’s still crispy.
  5. I like to store the leftovers in the fridge or freezer to keep the granola extra crispy.
