Let me just start off by saying that god put my on this earth for granola. I am a granola girl at heart, whether it's on smoothie bowls, yogurt bowls, as breakfast cereal, or in most cases, right out of the mason jar. Not only do I enjoy eating granola, but it's one of my favorite kinds of recipes to develop. There's just something about creating different, mouthwatering granola recipes that screams my name. So, today's spin on homemade granola goes out to all my chocolate fans, and those who aren't afraid to kick start their day with a little chocolate. If you loved cocoa pebbles as much as I did as a kid, you're going to love this recipe. Making a batch is super simple and only requires one bowl. Per usual, this recipe is gluten free, refined sugar free, and vegan!
