Inspired by Trader Joe's Organic Pumpkin Spice Granola Bark, this is my version adapted and of course...enhanced.
My mom had sent me a picture of TJ's version on instagram and I was immediately in awe. I HAD TO TRY IT!!! I love granola....like....LOVEEEE and well duh...CHOCOLATE who doesn't love that. I knew these would be gone before I had a chance to bring them home. So I solved that problem by creating a homemade version.
Same spicy flavor...Kicked it up a Notch!
Taking a note ...
I love cherry season!
When these guys come into season, I load up as much as possible and binge till my little belly is popping.
Actually....I basically do that to all fruits when they come into season because....well...I love FRUIT!!
I wanted to create a dish that would incorporate my love of cherries and my love of chocolate....BUT still be sort of healthy. Yea....chocolate doesn't usually scream healthy but when you add some good old oatmeal and fruit then it's okay right??? ...
