Chocolate Raspberry granola
The first time I had chocolate flavored granola was a few years ago at a national food blogger conference. For an afternoon snack, they handed out bags of chocolate strawberry granola. It was, hands-down, the best granola I’ve ever had – until now of course. When I got home I found that I could buy it online and that got me thinking. What if I made my own chocolate granola and used raspberries instead? And that’s exactly what I did. This recipe turned out so good that I now think my homemade version is hands-down the best granola I’ve ever eaten.
The perfect holiday gift
This granola makes a wonderful gift during the holidays. If we are going to someone’s home, I bring them a bag and if people are visiting us, they leave with a bag. Last year I did a gift basket for a couple of my friends and I put a bag of granola in each basket…it was a big hit!
How to store granola
I make large batches of granola and need to make sure that it stays crunchy and fresh. I store mine in very large airtight mason jars. A large airtight cookie jar would also work as well as a large ziplock bag. If you store it properly, it will last up to 2 months. That is if you don’t eat it all first.
