Peanut Butter Cacao Trail Mix Granola {gf,v}

Updated: Mar 21, 2021

Another granola recipe in the books! This granola recipe is for all my peanut butter lovers; its packed with peanut powder, peanut butter, raw cacao powder, and all your trail mix goodies, such as nuts, seeds, cacao nibs, oats, unsweetened coconut, and more! However, one of my favorite add ins is Trader Joe's gluten free mini pretzels. These mini pretzels truly make this granola the perfect sweet and salty snack or addition to any breakfast. The combination of the peanut butter and homemade chocolate drizzle is just right! All you do is blend up the bulk of ingredients, drizzle with chocolate, and you're all set. I love adding this to a yogurt bowl or on top of acai bowls; it's the best! Plus, its vegan, gluten free, and refined sugar free.
