Pomegranate Double Chocolate Granola makes a delicious and festive breakfast or snack. Best of all, it’s so easy to customize with you favorite add-ins!
Something I make nearly every week is a big batch of granola. It’s super simple to whip up and you can easily customize the flavors by tossing in whatever you have on hand.
With the holidays not too far away, I decided to add a festive touch to our favorite snack by throwing in some colorful pomegranate arils at the end.
We loved that this wasn’t too sweet and the flavor combination was just enough indulgence while still being on the healthy-ish side. Or you can totally ditch the chocolate chips and swap in some pistachios or your favorite nuts for a more wholesome version.
This Pomegranate Double Chocolate Granola recipe is simple to put together and can be in your oven in less than ten minutes.
It’s full of gluten free oats, shredded coconut, two kinds of chocolate chips and sweet pomegranate arils. It makes a great snack during the holidays and seriously impossible to stop at just one handful!
The great thing about granola is that you can make a big batch ahead of time and store it away to have on hand. Then in the morning, just toss some on top of some yogurt with your favorite fruit for breakfast.
A hearty and comforting bowl of goodness…just what we could all use right now ❤
