Chocolate Almond Granola

A cook really can't "mess up" granola and anything can be added but here is our current favorite~

In a food processor or blender, grind up/pulse to the texture you prefer~
1/2 cup Almonds (organic)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet, dark, milk~ any chocolate will work!)
Set aside.

In small saucepan melt together ingredients below:
1 cup brown sugar
4 Tbsp peanut butter
4 Tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
Set aside.

In a large bowl combine~
4 cups oats (rolled organic)
4 Tbsp. water

Pour the brown sugar, peanut butter mixture into the bowl. Stir well until combined.
Then stir in ground up almonds and chocolate.

Spoon onto prepared cookie sheets. I use parchment paper and lay the granola on that.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
Allow to cool.
Separate "chunks" and store in air tight container.

It's tasty by itself, in a bowl with milk and especially great with plain yogurt. Enjoy!
