Chewy Granola Parfait

Yesterday afternoon, I tried to fix my granola bar fiasco (please see previous post), but unfortunately I couldn't. I added the extra honey to my concoction, hoping it would stick together, but instead I ended up with a crumbly, sticky, sweet, oatmeal mess. I decided to sprinkle it on my yogurt and berries, and to my surprise, it was delicious. Personally, I liked it much better than straight up granola. It had a sweet chewy texture that I adore. My husband thinks it tasted like candy, but I disagree. There's no way I could come to terms with eating candy for breakfast ;)

CHEWY GRANOLA RECIPE

INGREDIENTS
2 tbsp butter
2 cups mini marshmallows
1/2 cup almond butter
2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup oats
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chopped dates
1/4 cup chopped mango
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/3 cup honey

In a large pot, melt butter on medium heat. Stir in the marshmallows. Continue to stir until melted. Remove from heat and add almond butter. Mix in the remaining ingredients, ensuring that you coat everything equally. Place in a plastic bag and refrigerate.
