Chocolate Granola Recipe


Orange & Chocolate Granola

Finally I found my dream granola! The one with nuts-seeds and dried fruits, without any oats or other grains, crunchy and delicious with cacao-orange flavors! The original recipe is from Brooke Brennan and I added some other ingredients. You can also mix and match the ingredients at home. You will love this recipe with Low Carbohydrate.

I love adding a spoon of it to my coconut yogurt as an afternoon snack as much as my practical breakfast. I must say that I need an extra protein with this if I know I can not eat until late midday so I boil and egg, too.
