Chocolate Granola

5 cups quick oats
1/2 cup cocoa
3/4 cup honey
1/2 cup butter 
1 t vanilla 
1/4 brown sugar
1/2 t salt

Mix oats, salt, and cocoa in large bowl. At low temp, melt butter. Remove from heat and stir in; honey, vanilla, and brown sugar. Pour over oat mixture and stir until coated. Spread on buttered baking sheet. Bake at 350 for approx. 25 minutes. Stir occasionally so the edges do not get too dark. Cool and store in an airtight container. 

Great with milk! 
It even turns your milk chocolatey :)
Also a great snack or topping for yogurt, ice cream, and even muffins!

Psa 34:8  O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.

I love this cereal but find some think it's a little 'dark' and like to add more sweetener. But we think it's great and love that it even makes our milk chocolatey!
