This Chocolate Chai Spice Granola is a quick and healthy granola loaded with flavors to get you in the holiday spirit.
There’s a new favorite granola in the house and it’s this Chocolate Chai Spice Granola.
Not only is it packed with flavor and spice, but it will make your whole house smell amazing as it bakes, too! The heavenly aroma just screams cozy and comforting to me as the temps turn cooler and the air turns brisk.
This is the prefect breakfast or snack to carry you through to the holidays.
I wasn’t sure how the kids would feel about this one with all the aromatic spices, but they all loved it and were begging for more! I’m thinking you will be too!
I prefer this chocolate chai granola with a splash of rice milk or sprinkled on top of non-dairy yogurt, but it would also be delicious for an on-the-go snack…perhaps mixed with some dairy-free chocolate chips! My kids love it dry and my son even took some in his lunchbox one day as a treat.
This spiced granola will remind you of your favorite tea latte with a very subtle hint of cocoa. Feel free to add even more cocoa powder if you like. I didn’t want it to overpower the other spices.
