Chocolate Granola with Almonds & Hazelnuts

Chocolate granola might seem decadent for breakfast but make your own and it can be enjoyed! Cacao does have health benefits.  Due to its flavonoid and magnesium content, it is supportive of cardiovascular health. The key is to use good quality chocolate with a high percentage of cacao solids and raw cacao powder so that the sugar content is minimised and nutrient content is maintained from minimal processing.
