    In a clean bowl melt the dark chocolate, ensuring it is completely melted. Once melted put this into either an icing or a ziplock bag.

    Remove the granola from the oven to cool. Once cool take the icing bag (or cut the corner off the ziplock bag) and drizzle the granola thoroughly with the melted chocolate.

    Use a variety of nuts (and seeds) that you can tolerate.

    Made these last night and they are amazing. I couldn’t add honey because of an allergy so I added yacon syrup. Can they go in the freezer? How long do they last in the refrigerator?

    1. Hi Koula
      So happy to hear you like them! They will last about a week in the fridge or a few months in the freezer.
