Chocolate sourdough granola (baked crunchy muesli)

This granola is perfect for a fast breakfast or as snack, with joghurt, milk or fruit. The mix of sourdough discard, maple sirup and ground almonds make it extra crunchy and helps build even crunchier clusters.

As everybody seems to love the recipe for my sourdough granola and my family asked me to make a chocolate version of if, I thought it would be a great idea to create a variation of the original recipe for all chocolate lovers. And what should I tell you? The combination of the chocolate granola with the herb cacao nibs and the fruity and sauer cranberries is simply perfect.

The recipe is additionally vegan and gluten free. You can also use brown butte instead of the oil or flakes from other grains. Just as you prefer!

Why I like to sweeten with maple sirup

Maple sirup increases the sugar in the blood lower than sugar, as its glycemic index is smaller (the glycemic index of maple sirup is 65). Additionally maple sirup is anti-inflamatory and contains potassium and B vitamines. The taste of maple sirup is perfect for the roasted muesli.

If you have any question or would like to tell me how my recipe turned out, I would love it if you would leave a comment down below. Have fun and enjoy!
