I love food and creating new recipes. My Dark Chocolate Granola was created by myself and is great to snack on besides chips or cookies. Hope you like!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a 9x13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
Melt together the brown sugar, peanut butter, honey, butter flavored spread, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir until well combined; remove from heat.
Combine the oats, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Pour the brown sugar mixture into bowl; stir well to combine. Stir in the chocolate chips, dried cranberries, and almonds. Spoon into the prepared pan; pat down and spread evenly.
Bake in preheated oven until browned, 15 to 20 minutes.

Eating healthy breakfast to continue the day had become a fabulous habit. It’s a fabolous way to start my 24 hours off healthfully. The sugar hit from the pickle tree wakes me up and gives me power to make on the morning. Sugar is often vilified as the root of all disease, but sweetness is also loaded with fibre, which is great for your digestive system and helps keep you feel full longer, and less likely grab a snack out of the street food before lunchtime.
Make fruit a morning habit is easy . Simply put the sweetness in your fridge next to the sweet drink or on the bench next to your grain bowl , or beside your coffee maker or tea kettle — about anywhere where you’ll find it. Before you eating the rest of your breakfast , eat your fruit. If you’re not usually a breakfast person.
