In my family we celebrate not only the birthdays, but also name days. Not as big as the birthdays, but at least with a delicious cake and a meal that the “celebrating child” can choose.

Me and my sisters have always wished for something special that we haven’t gotten so often. For example I wanted vanilla croissants, aka VANILLEKIPFERL, as a “cake”. My name day is in September and I didn’t want to wait another three months until christmas cookie time for my favourite biscuits…

Another time I had a crunchy granola on my wish list.

You have to know that we usually “only” got healthy oatmeal muesli for breakfast and cornflakes and crunchy granola were withheld on Sundays.

Having a batch of granola all to myself and being able to decide when I eat it and how much I eat was such a great idea for me.

I really got an extra large bag and my eyes were beaming with the sun.

Now I am that old (please refrain from comments here) that I can bake my own granolas. Whenever I want and as much as I want and the flavor I want.

Aawwweee.

Recently I baked this extra crunchy chocolate granola. It tastes incredibly delicious and is full of healthy ingredients.

The secret behind the special crunch is in the oats. I ground a part of it in a blender. Thus the dry and wet ingredients combine better and huge clusters are created.

If you like, you can add dark chocolate chunks AFTER baking. I skipped that step this time because the chocolate granola tastes really nice like cocoa by itself already.

Happy crunch. Crunch, crunch!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 130°C / 270°F top/bottom heat. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Melt the coconut oil gently. Stir in the maple syrup.
  3. Finely grind 100 g oat flakes in a blender (The oat powder will make your granola super crunchy). Mix them with the remaining dry ingredients in a large bowl. Stir in the liquid and mix well.
  4. Spread the mixture evenly on the baking paper and press down a little. Bake for about 35-40 minutes. Turn once after 15 minutes of baking and press the granola down again with a spatula.
  5. Allow the granola to cool completely before breaking it into pieces. Since it only becomes crunchy when cold, the result is really nice clusters.
  6. Store in an airtight container and consume within 2-3 weeks.
