Chocoholic Granola



  1. Cover a cutting board or baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the erythritol, water, and vanilla in a saucepan over medium-low heat.
  3. Bring to a light simmer, stirring every 30 seconds.

  5. Reduce the heat to low.
  6. Mix in the cocoa powder, cinnamon, salt and coconut flakes.
  7. Cook for 6 to 7 minutes.
  8. Remove from the heat and transfer the granola to the parchment paper.
