Double Chocolate Granola

This Double Chocolate Granola is a great way to start your day. We’ve all heard that chocolate makes us happy and I can honestly say, that eating this granola in the morning always brings a smile to my face. You just can’t be grumpy or sad when you’re eating good food.

It is super easy to make and while it takes some time in the oven to bake, you can make a large batch that will last you for a few days. This will make your breakfast routine a lot quicker whenever there is not a lot of time on your hands. The granola is chocolatey but not overly sweet and contains a variety of different, wholesome ingredients. Plus, it’s super versatile. So if you don’t have a particular ingredient, just swap it out with something similar!

I love to alternate this granola with my go-to overnight oats. These two are definitely my go-to quick breakfast options at the moment.
