Squeeze together with your hands till clumps form. You need to use your hands for this one. If your almond butter is on the loose side add a little more protein, if it's on the drier side add a little more syrup till clumps form.

Mix in freeze-dried strawberries. Cook's Note: Freeze-dried is not dried. It's crunchier, look for a brand with no added sugar. Store in an airtight container.

Chocolate Strawberry Protein Granola is great on Yogurt Parfaits, Cottage Cheese or sweetened (SF Syrup, Agave, Honey whatever you use) Ricotta Cheese for breakfast.

You can set up a DIY Breakfast Parfait making station (Berries, Yogurt, Granola, Glasses & Spoons) like I did (great for kiddos to make their own creation) or... you could deliver a breakfast parfait to your loved one in bed.

This Chocolate Strawberry Protein Granola is great as a snack on it's own too... just place some in a snack sized baggie and take it with you on a hike or toss in your carry-on bag when traveling. Premier Protein Whey Protein Powder has 30 grams of protein per scoop so you'll have plenty of fuel to get you to the top of the mountain or wherever your travels take you.

I just made this chocolate granola and had some in my yogurt this morning. Absolutely the greatest! I measure out 2 TBSP and put the rest away quickly as chocolate is a trigger for me. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
