Sometimes my sweet tooth and my salty tooth get cravings at the same time. Did you know that there is a salty tooth? Well, I don’t know if there is one “officially” but I can definitely tell you I get salty cravings that are just as serious as my sweet cravings. And my chocolate cravings.
This salted chocolate granola is exactly what you are looking for if all three cravings – sweet, salty and chocolate – hit you at the same time. It doesn’t have to be as tragic as it sounds. In fact, it’s not tragic at all. Because it is DELICIOUS.
Salted Chocolate Granola
It’s the combination of crunchy oats and nuts, sweet brown sugar and maple syrup, and kosher salt that will get you every time. Top all of that with the creamy deliciousness of Lindt chocolate and … well… you will no longer think of granola as a boring breakfast food. Nope, this granola could be dessert cause it’s awesome.
To make this salted chocolate granola, all of your ingredients get mixed together and baked in the oven. Right before the granola is done crisping, remove the pan from the oven and sprinkle your big chunks of chocolate on top.
Then, sprinkle sea salt over the chocolate. When the Lindt chocolate melts, the sea salt sticks to it. Chocolate + salt = heaven. It should have it’s own emoji.
You will be very tempted to try it when you finally take it out of the oven for good. But wait. Let it completely cool because sometimes the chocolate melts all of the way and you want it to re-harden if that happens. Once it is completely cool however… well, dig in.
