Dee's Dark Chocolate Granola
(8 servings) Printable Version
Spray a 13x9 pan (with aluminum foil) with cooking or baking spray. OR use parchment paper.
In a bowl mix oatmeal, salt, and cinnamon. Set aside.
In a small pot on LOW heat melt brown sugar, peanut butter, butter, vanilla and continuously stir until well combined. Be careful not to burn sugar.
Once properly mixed, add to oatmeal mixture. Use a spatula if necessary, you want to get all of the wet ingredients incorporated.
Once mixed well with oatmeal mixture, add dark chocolate chips and fold in. (At this time add optional ingredients if necessary.)
Pour mixture in pan. Pat down and spread evenly.
Bake for 15-20 minuted or until it has browned nicely.
If you want bars, cut with a pizza cutter immediately after removal from oven, as the granola should have a minimum of 20 min to set.
Fresh and/or organic ingredients work the best! Enjoy! Please provide Feedback!

Above commenter mentioned you couldn't cut into bars, but I didn't consider this a recipe for bars, but for homemade "cereal" with milk. I agree that this recipe should have A LOT LESS sugar. Way too sweet. I'm not sure this would be under "healthy" in my definition, but it's certainly could made made healthy with a few personal touches. Whole idea is to make this into a cereal. Can be sweetened with other options depending on your family's preference. Would be good with coconut & flax seed also.

My kids love it! I only used 1/4 c. brown sugar, and I used mini chips instead of the dark chocolate. I included the nuts, chopped up, and seeds. It didn't work well to cut into bars though. It just fell apart.
