Filled with warm spices like cinnamon and nutmeg plus two types of chocolate, your family is going to love this addictive snack. A pinch of cayenne gives it a little kick but feel free to add more or omit it entirely.

Since the granola is tossed with honey and olive oil, I find the subtle hint of heat is the perfect spice to balance out the sweetness of  this chocolatey granola.

    I made this granola yesterday and it is delicious! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Instead of mixing in a bowl, I warmed up the honey and oil and mixed everything in a pan on the stove and then spread out on a baking sheet. Turned out great! Can’t stop eating it. Love the addition of cayenne in it.

    Just pulled this out of the oven a bit ago, my kitchen smells amazing and I swiped a small taste-test… this will definitely rival my favorite chai granola recipe! The cayenne is what makes it so yummy!!! Thank you for the wonderful recipe! It will definitely become a staple for me!

    Oh my goodness! Making this granola has been on my radar ever since it was posted, and I finally made it! Absolutely incredible! I don’t even think I will add the chocolate chips – so rich and wonderful without them! Thanks for a real winner!!!!!
