Chocolate Peanut Granola

Last week I was looking through some recipe websites and ideas and came across this one for Chocolate Peanut Granola. I think I may have made granola one other time, several years ago, but it is not something that I usually think about making. Maybe it was the "chocolate" in the title or maybe it was that I am trying to be more and more frugal and save money on groceries. Either way, this recipe called my name!

The ingredients are wholesome and are all things that I already had either in my pantry or in my refrigerator, so this did not take much thought or time. It was simple to mix up, and it bakes only 45 minutes and you're done.

We have all enjoyed it. Well, almost all. Some of the children do not care for all the peanuts, but they love the chocolate flavour. We all savour the cinnamon and ginger spices with the chocolate. I think it would also be fantastic made with pecans or walnuts in place of the peanuts. We have enjoyed it both as a cereal and just as a snack.

I will make this one again soon! xo
