Outstanding!! This is a wonderful recipe for chocolate granola. I used Blue Agave syrup in place of the honey and was hoping it wouldn't ruin the recipe and it didn't, it worked well. I couldn't help myself and added 1/2 cup of sliced almonds. I didn't have flax meal and added nothing more because of it. I patted in down on the sheet and baked and cooled as instructed for a chunky texture. Perfect hint of chocolate that doesn't overtake the oatey wholesome goodness so it still tastes like granola and not a candybar. This is a keeper! Thanks CC for sharing.

This is a wholesome chocolatey treat that we absolutely love at our house. I first made this when it was a personal recipe before it became kitchen approved. My daughter loves it as a snack on its own…I add it to my yogurt and cereal for a delicious crunch and we all top our frozen yogurt with it when there is any left. I usually stick to the recipe except for the odd extra handful of chocolate chips. Also I watch the baking time fairly closely as I like it crispy but not overdone. Thank you CC loves to bake… we love your granola.

The first time I tried this recipe, I had no wheat or oat bran so I doubled the flaxmeal and added a 1/4 cup of cocoa powder. Heavy dose of fiber for the kids and they all love it, so I have kept these modifications each time I make it. We eat it in chunks and I'll sometimes mix it while baking for a finer texture and mix it in plain yogurt. My daughter even puts it in a splash of milk to eat it like cereal. Big hit here, and finding something that all three kids will love is no small feat, almost impossible.

Made this recipe several times now and love it! Just enough chocolate taste without overpowering the oats. It's a good simple chocolate/oat base recipe if you feel like playing around with add ins like nuts or dried fruit.
