Granola is not just for hippies!....Choco-coconut Granola

Great snack with just 7 ingredients!  I actually hate the stereotype that vegans or vegetarians are tree-hugging hippies.  That is why I came up with "keeping vegan sexy".  You can definitely make your plant-based diet something modern, sleek and sexy AND still taste damn good.

This easy recipe is perfect to pack in a little baggy and snack on it throughout the day.  Definitely should be a staple in your plantry as well! 

Choco-Coconut Granola

You could actually even eat this in the morning for breakfast.  Just add in almond milk or whatever dairy-free milk you prefer!

2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup natural peanut butter
2 tbsp coconut oil
1/4 cup coconut shreds
1/4 cup crushed cashews
1/4 cup carob chips

preheat oven to 350.  Quickly warm oil and peanut butter in a sauce pan or microwave until smooth.  Then, mix all ingredients in a bowl.  Transfer to a baking dish and cook in oven for 20-25 minutes.  Let the granola cool for 10 minutes.  That's it!  Who said cooking is difficult?!?!?!
