Ingredients

  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 ounces slivered almonds
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 6-8 fresh strawberries sliced
  • 15 ounces plain Greek Yogurt

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees. In large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, almonds and salt. Add the honey, oil, and vanilla and stir until everything is well coated. Spread the granola out in an even layer on a large cookie sheet or pan. Bake the granola for 15 minutes. Give it a stir on the pan and then continue baking it another 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven, place it on baking racks, and sprinkle the chocolate chips over the top of the granola. When the chocolate is glossy and melted, stir it into the granola then let it cool. If making ahead, once cooled store it in an air tight container for up to a week.
