  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped hazelnuts (optional)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa nibs
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ground coffee beans
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
  • 2 teaspoons coffee-flavored extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup miniature chocolate chips
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Mix oats, coconut oil, hazelnuts, cocoa nibs, maple syrup, ground coffee beans, brown sugar, cocoa powder, instant coffee granules, coffee-flavored extract, kosher salt, cinnamon, black pepper, and vanilla extract together in a bowl; spread onto the prepared baking sheet, smoothing with a spatula.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes; stir and continue cooking until lightly browned and beginning to crisp, about 10 minutes more. Cool granola completely.
  4. Mix chocolate chips into cooled granola and store in an air-tight container.
