Recipe

Chocolate Almond Granola

I recently boughtt a chocolate granola and realized how much I loved it. Now granola is a healthy food, but it is not low in calories and so I do my best to limit sugar and oil, but know that it is still to be enjoyed in small quantities. I usually mix a lot of fruit with a little yogurt and even less granola and it is perfect. This recipe can be modified so you can include coconut or leave it out, use almonds or any other nut, whatever you want.
