5-Minute Chocolate Granola

5-minute chocolate granola

Right now, all I want are speedy, nutritious and delicious breakfast options.

Food that I can whip up for the boys in no time at all, but which will be devoured without complaint!

This vegan 5-Minute Chocolate Granola is made in a skillet (or a pan) and is ready in…well, you guessed it…just five minutes.

It’s made using store cupboard essentials and tastes utterly delicious!

It is also completely addictive, chocolatey and a little salty, too.

I just so happen to think that you’ll love it too…

5-Minute Chocolate Granola


  • Makes one batch –
  • 5.5 tbsp vegan butter or coconut oil
  • 5-6 tbsp maple syrup (to taste)
  • 2 cups oats
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips


  1. Place a large pan onto a medium heat, then add your butter. Heat until melted, then stir in the maple syrup and vanilla.

  2. Next, whisk in the dry ingredients – the oats, almonds, coconut, cacao and salt.

  3. Continue to heat the mixture, stirring often, until the oats become fragrant and turn golden in colour (around 3-4 minutes). Turn the heat down if needed.
  4. Remove your granola from the pan, then allow to cool before stirring through the chocolate chips. Store in an airtight container until ready to eat.
