These are super easy and chocolatey! When I take them to get-togethers with other choices of cookies, these always go first! This is a classic recipe with a lot of variations. But this is the way I make them.
You can change this to include your favorite granola ingredients. The grandkids and I love this recipe! It makes a healthy snack that is quite filling. This will be a great snack to take with us on vacation.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Combine all dry ingredients in large bowl. Combine liquid ingredients and add to dry ingredients. Stir to mix.
Spread onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, then stir.
Return to oven and bake for another 10 minutes without stirring.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. Break into large clusters.
Store in covered container at room temperature.
A delicious, healthy snack that even the kids will love! This is wonderful as is, or change it up to make it your own. Add dried fruit, chocolate chips in place of the cacao nibs, or raw sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds. Pistachios taste especially good in this also!
This is the ideal snack if you are following an alkalizing diet!
This granola is perfect for using in my Fruit and Yogurt Parfait: http://www.cherylsrecipes.net/recipe/fruit-yogurt-parfait/
This works great as a cold cereal with milk. It is also wonderful served on oatmeal for a little extra flavor and crunch:

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside.
Combine liquid ingredients in a smaller bowl.
Mix wet and dry ingredients together thoroughly until evenly mixed.
Spread on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper.
Bake for 25 minutes, stirring halfway through.
Remove from oven to cool. Break into clusters when completely cool. Store in an airtight container when cool.
