Best ever is a strong statement and it seems that nearly every food blogger deems their recipe the best, but you know what, this really is the best ever. I've made a lot of granola recipes over the years (cue pictures of me as a hippie making granola in her kitchen), and this IS the best. I may be biased because I love chocolate and hazelnuts (nothing beats nutella) so if you do too, then this chocolate hazelnut granola is for you.

You know when people say "it's too granola" as if it's a bad thing. I couldn't disagree more. Granola is straight up delicious and if I am too granola for saying that then so be it.
But a lot of conventional granola sold in stores isn't super healthy though. Most of the times it is loaded with a lot of sugar, preservatives and even funky oils. That isn't to say all store bought granola isn't healthy, there are lots out there that are. And if you need something in a hurry, then by all means store bought may be the way to go. But if you have some time to spend in the kitchen, homemade granola is really easy to whip up plus your house smells amazing after baking it.
Making this healthy hazelnut granola is SUPER easy and won't take longer than 30 minutes, start to finish!
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl, except the chocolate chips.
Mix very well to combine everything.
Transfer to a large baking sheet that has been lined with parchment paper. Press down to make it an even layer, without gaps or being able to see the parchment paper on the baking sheet.
Transfer to the oven and bake for 20 minutes, remove and then flip (or simply rotate the pan) and bake for an additional five to seven minutes longer.
Remove the pan and scatter the chocolate chips on top.
