I was wondering if chocolate and apples would be friends in a cake. They aren’t, but they do make a good muffin. So after many twists and turns and some revisions, we have a tasty breakfast. Now, don’t use milk chocolate; apples need dark chocolate. We also need some crunch, so some walnuts are invited to the party. So we have fruit and nuts: chocolate granola? I hope you like it.
