Chocolate Quinoa Coconut Granola

Granola is one of those essential staples. It is an easy, tasty, and versatile good-for-you breakfast. While store-bought granola is full of sugars and fats, homemade granola allows you to monitor what is going into your breakfast bowl. The other day, I was set on creating a new chocolate quinoa coconut bar, despite failing to do so.. I ended up with this deliciously tasty granola. There are times when recipes don’t exactly work out the way you want them too, but luckily with this one the granola was a fantastic alternative!
