Chocolate Hazelnut Granola

A favorite treat used and sold at The Miller’s Table Cafe at home at Maine Grains

An extra large batch to share with friends – or stock the pantry. Gluten and soy free and low in sugar.


1 1/3 cup maple syrup
1 cup coconut oil, melted
8 cups Maine Grains Organic Rolled Oats
2 cups chopped hazelnuts
1 1/3 cup cocoa powder*
8 tbsp ground flax seeds
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp salt





Preheat oven to 350 degrees

  1. Warm the maple syrup and the coconut oil until the coconut oil is melted
  2. Mix all the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl
  3. Spread on a cookie sheet that is either lightly sprayed with oil or lined with parchment paper
  4. Bake 20-25 minuets, stirring every 5-10 minutes to make sure it does not overcook
  5. Let cool on the cookie sheet, then store in an airtight jar
  6. *At the Miller’s Table Cafe at Maine Grains we use ‘black cocoa’ making this granola taste like a cross between Nutella and Oreo cookies – but with far less sweet. Dutch cocoa, or any cocoa on hand will also work.
  7. This granola is divine on Greek  yogurt parfaits, atop ice cream – or all by itself!
