I don’t usually do breakfast recipes here at You Totally Got This, but I have decided to make an exception for this Double Chocolate Granola. Because OMG, SO DELICIOUS!

The combo of oats, crunchy nuts, coconut and lots and lots of chocolate is so good, you will actually want to get out of bed to eat breakfast.  And don’t worry. You won’t be starting the day on a sugar high. The magic combo of dark chocolate, cacao and coconut flakes makes this brekkie low in sugar, but still deliciously sweet (oh and vegans rejoice, my double chocolate granola is accidentally vegan too!)

This recipe. HUGE hit over on the ‘gram. You guys are going to love it. When you make it (because you will). Report back. I want all the double choc details.
