Chocolate Homemade Granola

In search of something sweet but healthy to crunch on ?! Well, than you have to try this delicious homemade granola with dark chocolate, flax seeds, oat flakes, maple syrup and honey – hmm just too yummy 🤤

I meet yesterday a lovely friend of mine, Zoe, and decide to do some last Christmas shopping together. Goes without saying that visiting Lies Scheerlinck and her full-of-gorgeous-stuff-shop is a must for finding those perfect little thing to surprise your loved ones with. Get more details about her on https://m.facebook.com/lies.scheerlinck.sintniklaas/ and, if you find yourself in Sint Niklaas make sure to drop by. Pinky promised you won’t be disappointed 😍

So, after a beautiful morning at Lies, Zoe and me decided to bake something together ; granola seemed to be perfect since she never ate it before. And it was a success since she loved it and took some home with her. I think we can call this officially a good day.

Hope you have a perfect time, y’all
