Chocolate-Coated Granola - Super Healthy, Super Crunchy, Super Delicious

I picked up a bag of ANITA`s Organic Mill Breakfast Boost the other day, which is a really fantastic granola mix with spelt, almonds, Kamut flakes, and more with a strong hint of cinnamon. Since I am not a cereal-with-milk-in-the-morning kinda girl, I thought it might be more fun to make healthy morning granola bars, with a lot of protein and a chocolaty twist.

These are definitely bitter, but of course, that is what I like. But if you prefer something sweeter, feel free to use an organic semi-sweet, milk or white chocolate coating to sweeten them up. Or add some organic coconut sugar to the granola mix.

Recipe: Homemade Chocolate-Covered Granola Bars

You need:
  • 1 bag of ANITA's Organic Mill Breakfast Boost - Ancient Grains with Raisins and Cranberries
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 3 tbsp. agave
  • 2 egg whites (or whole eggs if you really want it to stick and do not worry about the yolks)

For the Coating:
  • 100 grams of 70% Dark Organic Chocolate (or for something sweeter, milk or white chocolate)

Instructions:
  1. Grease a parchment paper on front and back and place inside a 9"x 13" pan.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a mixing bowl.
  3. Press into a pan.
  4. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree F oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until starting to brown.
  5. Remove, let cool one minute cut slices in the size you want (1" x 3" for granola bar strips).

Once cooled, pour melted and tempered chocolate onto the bars and spread around. For tempering instructions, click here.

Freeze what you will not eat within 3 days.

Please Note:
As I have mentioned before, I have not been paid by any organization to write posts like this one.  I really like ANITA's Organic Mill Breakfast Boost granola mix, so I wrote about it (without the knowledge of the company).
