chocolate coconut granola // hemp seeds + quinoa

chocolate coconut granola // hemp seeds + quinoa
We love breakfast. Some days breakfast needs to be quick and easy and other days allow for a long leisurely breakfast over a vegan eggs bene or banana pancakes. Any way you choose to breakfast it needs to be good.

Making your own granola is so easy and much less expensive than any store bought granola.

My granola's vary from super crunchy (this one) to a softer granola (like this one). I prefer the crunch while Justin prefers the latter. It kind of reminds me of cocoa pebbles.

As I type this I am actually noshing on some coconut yogurt topped with this granola- soooo yum!
