Kamut? What’s kamut?

It is an ancient type of wheat grain that you can buy in flake form. It makes a high protein alternative to oatmeal in this delicious granola.

Kamut flakes look similar to rolled oats.

You can find it at a local health food store or even at a bulk store, which is where we buy ours.

Of course you can always substitute large rolled oats if you cannot find it or, like me, you really do love oatmeal granola.

This granola makes a great morning grab and go breakfast or a wholesome after school snack. Spouse also crushed some and added it to plain yogurt and that was pretty tasty too.

Dark Chocolate Chips, to melt and dip the biscotti

I like to use 50% dark chocolate chips for this recipe but you can use semisweet as well.

Additions to your Chocolate Kamut Granola

We had some dried strawberries here at the time we made this batch. So, we threw those in for extra flavour and chewy texture but you can substitute any dried fruit.

Any favorite nut would also make a good addition. Just toast them first in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes for most large nuts.

Toss them after 5 minutes for even toasting.

Can I substitute cocoa with some sugar to replace chocolate chips?
