Almond Joy Granola

Granola is usually thought of as a healthy food, but most store bought granolas are loaded with added sugar and high in calories. This almond joy granola combines my favorite flavor combination, chocolate, almond, and coconut, without the sugar content of store bought granola. It features coco powder, which is loaded with antioxidants and is a good source of fiber. Enjoy with milk, yogurt, or on its own as a healthy breakfast or snack.
