Homemade Chocolate Granola

I really liked this different granola. Don didn't care for it as a cereal, but Kathleen discovered it is great over ice cream and would be a great mix in for yogurt!

Homemade Chocolate Granola

1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup oil
½ cup honey
½ cup cocoa
3 cups old fashioned oats
4 cups quick cooking oats (you can use all old fashioned oats, but we like the texture with both kinds)
1 cup chocolate chips
In a small sauce pan combine brown sugar, oil, and honey. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in cocoa.

Place oats in a large bowl and stir in sugar/cocoa mixture. Spread into 2 9×13 pans.(or one jelly roll pan)

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and stir in chocolate chips.

Turn off oven and return granola to oven. (Yes you turn the oven off and place granola back in it. This helps the granola to finish cooking without over cooking it.)

Leave in oven for 1-2 hours. Remove from oven and let cool. Store in sealed containers or jars.
