We regularly make granola in our house and in fact I've been making this hot chocolate mexican granola for weeks but I am so excited to finally share it with you all.

Filled with hot spices like cinnamon and nutmeg, plus two types of chocolate, your family will love this addictive snack. A pinch of pepper gives it a little kick, but feel free to add more or skip it entirely.

Since the granola is mixed with honey and olive oil, I think the subtle touch of heat is the perfect spice to balance out the sweetness of this chocolate granola.

What are your favorite ingredients and granola mixes? I would love to hear from you.

Forks are not required.
