Chocolate Granola Squares...




Do I have a simple treat for you!

Only four ingredients....... FOUR, people! It can't get any easier than this.

I heart granola, but it can get a little boring eating your typical granola and yogurt. So, that's why I thought I'd dress it up a bit.

To do that, I mixed it with some melted chocolate.... walnuts.... coconut, too.

Now, I consider this treat somewhat healthy....... the granola...... am I right? Of course I am. Yes, it has some chocolate in it, but who cares right!?! It's all about moderation.

Want to make it even healthier? Use dark chocolate instead of the semi-sweet chocolate I used.

Please say you'll try this... I'm telling you, it will hit the spot...


Chocolate Granola Squares

  • 2 Cups Granola Mix (I used a Chocolate and Berry Mix)
  • 1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 1/4 Cup Shredded Coconut
  • 1 Cup Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels 
Line an 8x8 square pan with parchment paper. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, mix together the granola, walnuts, and coconut. Break up any large clusters of granola. 

In a heat proof bowl, melt the morsels in the microwave in two 30 second intervals, stirring after each interval. Once the morsels are melted and smooth, pour over the granola mixture and stir until well combined.

Spray a spatula with cooking spray (it will be sticky) and transfer the chocolate granola mix into the 8x8 pan, pressing it to cover the inside of the pan. Chill in the refrigerator for up to an hour or until set. Remove the chilled chocolate granola and cut into squares or break into pieces. Keep in the refrigerator to keep from melting.

Enjoy!
