3 cups rolled oats (not instant)
5 T oat flour or whole wheat flour
1 cup chopped almonds
2/3 cup honey or agave
1/3 cup coconut oil
1 cup dried, unsweetened coconut chips/flakes
1 tsp salt
2/3 cup cacao nibs
Set the cacao nibs aside and mix dry and wet ingredients separately. Combine the dry and wet ingredients and bake on large baking pan for 30-45 minutes at 300 degrees. Take it out when it's a nice toasty brown and smells amazing. Add in the cacao nibs and extra chocolate chunks, if desired. The granola won't be crunchy right away, but will harden as it cools. Enjoy!
3 T oats
1/4 cup pecans
1/2 cup almond or pecan milk ( We love Treehouse Milk)
6 chocolate ice cubes (make a batch of drinking chocolate & freeze it in an ice cube tray-- they're perfect for smoothies & iced coffees!)
1/2 frozen banana
Blend the oats, pecans, and milk until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and continue blending until creamy. If you're feelin' crazy, drizzle some chocolate sauce on the inside of your glass, and definitely top that bad boy with granola, pecans, and chocolate chunks.
1/4 cup organic pumpkin puree
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup almond milk
1 T maple syrup
1 t pumpkin pie spice (or a dash each of cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg)
1/2 cup ice
Dark chocolate chips
Blend everything but the chocolate chips until smooth. Add in the chocolate chips and pulse just a few times to break them up. Top with more chocolate chips!
