Flax Oat Granola with a Chocolate Twist


Getting my kids to eat anything flax, is like pulling teeth…unless…of course…they don’t know it’s there.

Ingredients :

Flax Seed

Quick Oats

Dark Chocolate Chips

Brown Sugar (optional)

Butter or Coconut Paste/Oil

In a large saucepan, add enough butter or coconut oil  and brown sugar to coat the amount of oats that you desire. I did about 5 cups of oats:  1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup brown sugar.


Once blended and melted, I added my oats. Keep on low heat, while gently turning to coat. Turn in the flax seed. I recommend for optimal digestion and health: grind the flax seed first, in a coffee grinder.





Lastly, add the chocolate…


Once the ingredients are blended and heated (about 15 minutes on low heat), scoop the mixture on a sheet of wax paper and let set for 30 minutes.


Not only does this make a great snack pack for school lunches, but it makes a fantastic cereal. Add almond, soy or dairy milk.

As always, feel free to tweak.
