Dark chocolate. Peanut butter. Granola. = Total party in the mouth. Or with a spoon and some milk. Or on top of a banana or some yogurt. However you choose. Just believe me, this is good stuff.
I am a cereal addict. I could it cereal for all 3 meals plus snacks every day. But granola is a breakfast food and a snack food. So no wonder it makes me happy.
If you think you love cereal that comes from a box on a shelf, be warned, this recipe may change your mind.
Oats, chia seeds, kamut puffs, puffed millet and sesame seeds make for a great granola combination.
Dark Chocolate peanut butter, a delicious ingredient.
Mix the honey and peanut butter together. Stir in cinnamon plus vanilla and voila, you’ve got the granola glaze.
Clusters of granola, yum!
This is one jar of treats that you WILL NOT be able to shut the lid on!
I am not going to lie. I ate some of this straight out of the container with a spoon. And sometimes with my fingers.
