Chocolate Granola! Yum!

I made this fabulous granola tonight that everyone will love! We finished off the cinnamon granola, and I really wanted to try something new; Chocolate granola! Boy, was it good! Of course we didn't eat it all! Mark and I shared a small bowl to taste. I hope you all love the recipe, it is a definite winner!

Chocolate Granola
3 cups oats
1 cup millet puffs
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
1/2 sliced or slivered almonds (I used sliced)
tbsp butter
1/4 tsp salt
2 tbsp brown sugar
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup water
tbsp vanilla
3/4 cup dark chocolate, chopped (I used semi-sweet mini chocolate chips!)

Preheat oven at 300F. Line baking sheet with parchment if you like. It doesn't stick much, so you really don't have to. In a small pot combine - water, honey, sugar, butter, salt and vanilla. Bring to a simmer. Meanwhile, mix all dry except chocolate chips. Once the liquid has come to a simmer, stir into dry mixture. Put on baking sheet and bake 45 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes so it doesn't burn. Let cool completely, then add chocolate chips. I bag mine up into 2 cups each, so about 4 servings in 3 small sandwich bags. Hope you all enjoy! :)

Until next time,
