Cakery Friday: Chocolate Granola



chocolate granola / papery & cakery



I am a huge proponent of the saying “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” The same could be applied to my original granola recipe. But let’s be honest, some things just taste extra yum with a little cocoa. This recipe is super simple and has an extremely long shelf life. It makes the perfect addition to your breakfast yogurt but is perfectly delicious eaten all on its own.
