Top tips for double chocolate granola
- Use rolled oats – rolled oats will provide the texture we are looking for. If you can’t find any rolled oats you can also use quick oats but the texture will not be the same. Use gluten free rolled oats if needed.
- Press the granola onto the baking sheet – to get those crispy granola clusters. Press it together onto the baking sheet with your rubber spatula.
- Check your granola halfway through – as most ovens are different, check your granola to avoid it from burning.
Want to get crunchy clustered granola?
Here are some very easy tips to get delicious granola clusters:
- Once you have spread the granola on your lined baking sheet, gently press the granola down with the back of your rubber spatula onto the baking sheet.
- Do not touch the granola once it’s in the oven. Stirring the granola halfway through will just prevent the clusters to form.
- Let the granola cool off completely before breaking it down. Once cooled, use your hands to break off the granola into clusters.
How to store double chocolate granola
Before storing the double chocolate granola make sure it is already cool. If stored when warm, your granola could soften and lose its crunchiness. This granola keeps for three to four weeks when stored in an air-tight container at room temperature.
