Crunchy Peanut Butter Chocolate Granola

IMG_4739Chocolate OatmealI am a granola freak. I love crunchy granola, chewy granola, granola bars, and granola that is spiced up with all kinds of yummy goodness. First off, chocolate + peanut butter= the perfect combination… ever! This granola is loaded with bursting chocolate and peanut butter flavors. There are also bits of chocolate chips that will make the granola still together for more chocolate flavor.
