Chocolate almond butter granola with oats, nuts, and cacao. Sweetened with maple syrup and chocolate chunks. Chunky, chocolate-y, and perfect for topping!
There’s a running joke in my house that if something doesn’t have chocolate in it, it won’t get eaten.
Which is partially true.
The banana bread loaves that come out of the oven clustered with chocolate chunks definitely goes faster than those that don’t sport dark chocolate spots.
Then there’s my favorite store bought Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola which is absolutely delicious and *highly* addictive.
You’ve been warned.
Naturally I grab for the big granola hunks with the chocolate chips, first, because those are the best.
Well, last week, M peered into the resealable ‘nola bag and asked deadpan if I had eaten all of the chocolate out of the granola mix *again*.
Since then, we’ve established that said granola is mine to do as I please.
Which means eating all of the chocolate first, because there’s no wrong way to eat a bag of granola.
Can I get a witness?
Naturally I wanted to try to recreate a highly addictive granola of my own, but make it oil-free with as much dark chocolate as I want.
This Chocolate Almond Butter Granola is so good, I might even save a bit for you.
Let’s bake some homemade granola!
