      Hi Neeta,
      Thank you so much ❤️ Well Coco powder gives a nice chocolate flavour and also gives the granola a dark chocolate colour. I suggest you reduce the quantity if needed. But if you don’t like it at all, then yes you can skip it. The procedure remains same. Though if you are skipping then would suggest add more chocolate chips for that extra chocolate flavour. I have another granola recipe on my blog, you can check that all well and let me know how it turned out. Enjoy
      Aarti 🙂
