Those that love chocolate for its bitter notes will love this hearty granola for its dense crunch and subtle sweetness. Desirable as it is nourishing, chocolate granola is the perfect accompaniment to a strenuous hike in the high country, or a long-term sweet tooth. Cracked rye is the secret of the recipe, its bitterness slowing time-released nutrients and consumption. Chocolate needs cheery company and whole hazelnuts encrusted in granola are a classic duo popularized in Europe around the 1500’s when confectioneries combined the two to create Gianduja, a Nutella-like, but more delicious chocolate-hazelnut spread.
Ingredients: Oats, Honey, Cracked Rye, Pumpkin seeds, Hazelnuts, Fig Pieces, Dark Chocolate, Vanilla Beans, and Salt.
