This mint chocolate chip granola, which makes a great edible holiday gift, is made with two types of chocolate and a splash of wintery peppermint extract. —Angela Brown
What You'll Need
unsweetened cocoa powder
large egg white
extra virgin olive oil
light brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons
unsweetened shredded coconut
almonds, roughly chopped
chocolate chips, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Combine all ingredients except for the chocolate chips in a large bowl. Toss to combine. Evenly spread the mixture on the parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake the granola, stirring every 10 minutes, until golden brown, about 40 minutes. Remove from the oven and transfer the granola to a large bowl. Immediately add in the chopped chocolate chips and toss to combine. Spread the mixture back onto the parchment-lined baking sheet and allow to cool completely before transferring to an air-tight container.
