Chocolatier’s Tip

Adjust the intensity of the chocolate to suit your personal taste; our EXCELLENCE 70% Dark Chocolate is ideal for those who like a classic dark chocolate, whilst our EXCELLENCE 90% Dark Chocolate is perfect for purists. This recipe can be made gluten free by using gluten-free oats. If making this recipe for someone following a gluten-free diet, always check the manufacturer's label to ensure your ingredients are free from gluten.

10 people


  • 400 g jumbo oats (see Tip)
  • 150 g almonds, roughly chopped
  • 60 g pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 250 g unsweetened apple sauce
  • 125 ml maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 100 g Lindt EXCELLENCE 85% Cocoa Dark Chocolate, roughly chopped (see Tip)
  • 10 slices of dried apple, roughly chopped


Step 1.

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160 Fan/Gas 4. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

Step 2.

In a large bowl mix together the oats, almonds, pumpkin seeds, cinnamon and salt and set aside.

Step 3.

In a small bowl combine the apple sauce, maple syrup and melted coconut oil.

Step 4.

Pour the liquid ingredients into the oat mixture and mix well to combine.

Step 5.

Divide the oaty granola mixture evenly between the prepared baking sheets and spread in an even layer. Bake for about 40 minutes, until golden (taking care to ensure the granola doesn’t burn) rotating the trays and turning the mix halfway through.

Step 6.

Whilst the granola is baking, melt the chocolate in a heat-proof bowl set over a pan of barely simmering water. Set aside to cool to room temperature.

Step 7.

Drizzle the chocolate over the granola as soon as it comes out of the oven. Lightly mix the chocolate through the granola, breaking up any extra large clumps.

Step 8.

Leave to cool completely before mixing in the chopped dried apple pieces.

Step 9.

Our Lindt Master Chocolatiers recommend serving with yogurt and berry compote for a delicious breakfast. You can use vegan-friendly alternatives to make this recipe suitable for vegans.
