Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola

Most of you know that I am seriously obsessed with granola.   And I also adore anything that contains peanut butter and chocolate, especially dark chocolate.  So, (I thought to myself) why not make a recipe that contains both? Y E S!!  Who says healthy snacks can’t taste delicious?

Holy cow this is INCREDIBLE!  And the best part is, it’s completely healthy.  No junk in here (unlike other granolas in the supermarkets).  This makes the perfect healthy snack, or breakfast or dinner.  Don’t judge.

One word of advice, I urge you to put it into individual plastic bags for portion control.   You seriously just might eat all of it at once.  Not that I would know anything about that, it’s just words of advice.   It is addictive.  Yes, I know, it’s super healthy, but too much of anything isn’t good for you.   I really hope you enjoy this as much as I did!  You will want to make this every single week.  And your family will thank you :)

      Not a dumb question at all Nancy! It is actually uncooked and it makes the granola super crunchy. I will add that to the recipe so everyone knows that. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you like the granola :)
