Step 1: Combine your ingredients in a bowl
To start, mix 1 cup of rolled oats and 1/2 cup of quick oats in a large mixing bowl. Add in 1/2 cup of mixed nuts, 2 tablespoons of cacao powder, 1 tablespoon of lucuma powder, and 5 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup. Mix everything together until the ingredients are well combined and coated with the sweet and chocolatey mixture. The cacao and lucuma powder will give the granola a rich and chocolatey flavour, while the honey or maple syrup provides just enough sweetness to balance out the nutty and chocolatey flavours.
Step 2: Bake the granola
Once the ingredients are well combined, spread the mixture evenly onto a baking sheet. Bake the granola in the oven at 170°C for 15 minutes or until golden brown. As the granola bakes, the oats will become crispy and the nuts will toast, giving the granola a crunchy texture. The aroma of the chocolate granola will fill your kitchen and entice your taste buds, making it hard to resist a taste before it cools down.
