Granola isn't just made of oats: you can also create your vegan grain free one using almond meal and nut butter! Plus, with chocolate, everything's better.

⅓ cupNut butter70 gr
4tablespoonsAquafaba (unwhipped - from unsalted chickpeas)
1 tablespoonMaple syrup
Cocoa nibsto your taste
Chocolate chips (vegan)to your taste
A pinch of salt
Cinnamonto your taste
Pre-heat the oven at 150° C (302° F)
In a bowl, combine your almond meal, with nut butter (I've tried both pecan's and almond's), 4 tablespoons of aquafaba (liquid from cooked unsalted chickpeas) and maple syrup.
Stir using your hands, like when you make crumble.
Add cocoa nibs, chocolate chips, a pinch of salt and a pinch of cinnamon (I actually love strong flavors so I put a lot more than a pinch).
Now, spread the mixture (crumbles) on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 35 minutes. To prevent burning, remember to stir every once in a while. Time depends on how moist the granola was.
Let it cool down and enjoy with milk or yogurt.
TIP: I take photos during the day so I usually put my granola into a jar of yogurt, mix, refrigerate until the morning after. I love it!!!!
