    Just started WW (again!), and wanted something sweet and filling. This was perfect! Loved the added crunchiness of the Rice krispies! Used two dark chocolate squares of one small bar. Thanks for sharing! ;)

    Calee's review and photo inspired me to try this recipe myself and I was not disappointed. Wonderful granola with just a hint of cinaamon and chocolate. We've been enjoying this over vanilla yogurt and sliced bananas. Thank you for posting this one.

    Fantastic granola! Love the chocolate flavor I used semi sweet chocolate this time but next time I want to try the bittersweet. I served over vanilla yogurt. It has just a hint of sweetness I also ground the pecans. Next time I will omit the salt or reduce it by half. You would never know there is rice krispies in this recipe they blended nicely with the other ingredients. Made for the Lite and Low cooking challenge in the photo fourm. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Really Really Good! Wow, we ate this up before we could even use it over ice cream or cereal. I don't think I would change a thing, except double the recipe! Thank you for sharing! Made this for Pick A Chef 08.


<p>I am a full-time mom to 3 ages 8, 16, and 22! I really enjoy cooking for my family and friends. I am really getting into OAMC cooking since I have busy kids and a busy life. I am also starting to get better about menu/meal planning so I don't have to go to the grocery store as often as I have in the past.</p>
