Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Mix

 

Dark Choc PB granola 50

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.
