Homemade Granola Recipe 

Breakfast can be a stressful time for many. We are either frantically trying to get out the door or we are juggling kids while trying to get something on the table quickly.

I love to have quick and easy options available to make my mornings go smoother.

My chocolate granola recipe is a twist on my classic granola recipe. I make a big batch on the weekends and I can eat on it all week. I will eat it with milk or on top of greek yogurt with berries.

It takes minutes to prepare and it's kid approved! I hope you enjoy it as much as our family does.
