Chocolate Granola For Anyone!

Calling all chocolate lovers!  I found a new way to get a chocolate fix.  Chocolate granola! 

 Blog-Choc Granola 1

I adapted this recipe, tried it, and then two days later I found that Trader Joe’s had a chocolate granola.  Then I found a gluten free chocolate granola in another store.  So glad I made homemade a few days earlier!  Homemade is fun!  Homemade is less expensive!  Homemade is easy!
