Chunky, crunchy, sweet granola with smooth chocolate and freeze-fried raspberries. The perfect combo! Pair with milk, add to yogurt, or snack on its own for some delicious fuel.


  • 4 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cups finely chopped nuts (I used a mix of almonds and walnuts)
  • 1/8 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup regular cane sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup, warmed in microwave
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 23 TBSP date syrup or honey
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup freeze-dried raspberries, crushed
  • additional flaky sea salt, for topping


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and set aside a large baking sheet.
  2. In a large bowl, add all dry ingredients except freeze-fried raspberries and chocolate chips.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, add all wet ingredients and stir to mix.
  4. Pour wet ingredients into dry mixture, and mix with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined.
  5. Carefully pour granola mixture onto baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
  6. Let cool, then add in chocolate chips and crushed freeze-fried berries.
  7. Enjoy! Store in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to 1 week.
