Healthy No-Bake Chocolate Granola

My sister and I got creative over the weekend and made a healthy, chocolate pre-workout snack.  Yes, healthy and chocolate are in the same sentence!

I actually ended up eating this for breakfast on Sunday as well.. it’s just too good!

Here are our ingredients:

  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons virgin coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon cacao power
  • 1/2 cup chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons PB2
  • 1/2 cup flax seeds
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit

dessertThe oatmeal, virgin coconut oil, and raw honey are the base, and the rest of the ingredients are to add texture/taste.  The above measurements were just what we used this time.  You can add more/less as you prefer.

We mixed the coconut oil, raw honey, and cacao first to create our “chocolate”.

 Next we added the granola, chia seeds, and flax seeds. dry ingredients

Lastly we added our dried fruit.  You can use whatever dried fruit you want!mixing

Once it is all mixed together we let it sit in the fridge for a while.  As it gets colder, the coconut oil hardens giving it a texture that I prefer.  You can eat it however you’d like 🙂

So my sister and I had some difficulties coming up with names for our creation.  These were a few that made the list…

  • Kyla’s Crazy Cracklin’ Chocolate Confection
  • I’m hungry and this stuff looks like it’d taste good together fudge
  • Courtney’s Crazy Chocolatey Creation

We ended up settling on “Healthy, No-Bake Chocolate Granola”

Enjoy!!

  1. Hi Courtney! I love your blog!! I have been following Undressed Skeleton for some time now and saw Taralynn reference your blog…I’m so happy she did. I have recently gotten into running and have worked up from barely being able to run for 5 min. to a solid 30 min. now and am doing my first 5K this Saturday. You have some great tips and have really inspired me to keep going. You are definitely an inspiration for what you can accomplish with hard work and dedication. I look forward to your blog growing!

    • That is great to hear! Good luck to you on Saturday! 5k’s are wonderful starting out races. If you’re like me, you’ll become addicted to crossing the finish line and will be searching for more races to run!
