Chocolate Granola

Posted on | October 11, 2012 | 2 Comments


Its been almost 4 years since we ditched the overly processed, mainstream bags, boxes & packages. Yet my kids still remember the tastes of some of those things. Cold breakfast cereals in a box have been one of the hardest things to replicate. Sure, I make granola, & yes, we purchase organic brands of boxed cereals occasionally, but they still look wistfully at the colourful, pretty boxes on the shelves at the grocery stores. The wee-est bub often asks for chocolate in oatmeal, a task I’m happy to oblige but only on occasion.

I got up Wednesday morning with the intent of making granola. While I was reviewing the recipe, I had a thought. “Why not add cocoa powder?” It was already sitting on the counter from where I’d just made homemade “Nesquik” & homemade chocolate syrup. So that day, granola & chocolate came together in what is now known by the peanut gallery as “Tastes almost like Cocoa Pebbles” & “That was REALLY good, Mom!”


Chocolate granola will happen again in our house.

And yes. It turns your milk to chocolate milk 😀
