Chocolate Granola Recipe



Okay i had to admit, i have consumed packets and packets of muesli when i was pregnant. i am not sure about the month, but sometime in my second trimester, i craved a lot of this stuff for breakfast. I know it is good with full of oats, nuts and dried fruits..But few months after that i totally disliked it, i never want to see that stuff again. Yes you guys know about pregnancy right..

From those days, Its been a while since i had this muesli. Few months back, i thought to give this a try at home, since i had all the ingredients on hand. And i should tell you, it was thousand times better than the ones which you get at stores..I made a traditional muesli before and it turned out just wonderful. This is my new spin on muesli and i made it into a chocolate flavoured ones and it was delicious.


I had few bowls of this muesli mixed with milk in the following days, i gave half of the mix to my mom and i reserved few cups of this for making the best granola muffins in the world. And today i did that too, it was amazing, i will post that recipe sometime by today, so keep a eye on my blog. This post is quite a big one, so be patient to load it for a while and check the pics out..


Hope you will try this recipe and let me know how it turned out for you..
