Light sweet and deliciously crunchy, this Gluten Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola will be your new favorite breakfast or snack!
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? YES!!
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 many of the other granolas hat are sold in the supermarkets. This makes the perfect healthy snack, or breakfast or dinner.
No judgement please.
One word of advice, I urge you to put it into individual plastic bags or plastic containers 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. But trust me on this, it is addictive.
Yes, I know, it's super healthy, but too much of anything isn't good for you. Calories and fat add up pretty quickly, especially when something tastes this yummy.
You will want to make this every single week. And your family will thank you.
It's always easy to have healthy options available to avoid all of the unhealthy choices out there. That is why I pick one day a week to prepare some meals and snacks so we are ready to go.
Typically my meal prep day is Sunday because that is what works bets with my schedule. I make snacks, slice veggies, grill chicken, slice fruit, you name it.
The idea is to save time and always having healthy options on hand. It might seem like a lot of work but in the end it's worth it.
I mean, why would you want to eat the crust of your kid's grilled cheese when you have a batch of this granola waiting for you?
Pour this on your Greek yogurt (my personal favorite), pour in a bowl with almond milk, top this granola over fresh fruit, serve on top of pancakes... I am telling you there are endless possibilities here.
This is perfect when you crave something crunchy but don't want to eat those chips in your house. Absolutely delicious.
And those chips aren't even worth all of those extra calories and fat. I promise.
