My first batch of granola flew off the shelf, so I decided to go ahead and make another batch up last night. This one was amazing! I used Lisa’s suggestion, and added 1/4 C of coco powder. I went ahead and left out the fruit, added more nuts and doubled the recipe so that we don’t run out so quickly this time. I have never had chocolate flavored granola before, and it was quite a treat. I highly recommend trying it.
I imagine this would also be a great stand in for Cocopuffs and the like, if you are trying to wean your children (or grown men) off of overly processed, minimally nutritious, ready-to-eat breakfast cereals.
Here’s the link to my first granola recipe, and a couple others you might enjoy:
