What can be better than chocolate at breakfast? This recipe adds chunks of it into granola so you're not only starting off your day on a right note, but a decadent one.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, almonds, salt, and cinnamon. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, brown sugar, honey, and vanilla. Whisk well and pour over oat mixture. Toss to combine and spread the granola on prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, stir carefully and then continue to bake for another 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, transfer to a large bowl, and let cool 5 minutes. Add the dried cherries and chocolate chunks, mixing to combine. Cool completely and store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
