Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola

My Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola wasn’t supposed to be like this.

It was supposed to be firm, yet chewy. Sliced into bars. Wrapped up and ready for after preschool snack time. Sort of like this.

But, sometimes things don’t turn out the way you think they should; they turn out even better.

Colin and Owen really enjoy this granola for breakfast over yogurt, parfait style!
