Grape and Dark Chocolate Chunk Muesli

. . . Because chocolate chunks are just plain better than chocolate chips.

Although most of my favorite food blogs are vegan (or at least vegetarian), I take inspiration from all food lifestyles. I check FoodGawker at least twice every day and browse until I have viewed each new recipe, and I know the times of the day that the site is usually updated. It might be an addiction…


Ever since I “met” Haley from Cheap Recipe Blog, hers is one of the sites that I often find inspiration. Recently, she shared a cheap and easy entertaining idea of serving frozen grapes, dark chocolate, and wine for dessert. Um, I love all three of those things, so YES.


Too lazy to actually host a dinner party, I just froze some grapes and then ate it with dark chocolate . . . by myself, because that’s how I roll. Needless to say, it was a beautiful combination, and I immediately added “grape & dark chocolate muesli” to my oatmeal to-do list. Thanks for the idea, Haley!


Obviously, you can swap in chocolate chips, but there is something inexplicably special about a chopped up chocolate bar. . .

    I do not care for grapes, but still wanted to try this recipe. Admittedly, I went heavy-handed on the almonds and chocolate, to help cover up the grapes. I still do not like grapes (the texture is too much like eyeballs), but I really enjoyed the taste of almonds and raw oats together. It reminded me of Honey Bunches of Oats cereal. I believe I’ve mentioned it in the comments before, but I’ve been eating raw oats with milk and honey for years. I’m going to try adding almonds, to make a honey nut muesli.

    Oh really!? That’s interesting. I really don’t like grapes, but still felt compelled to try this recipe. Maybe it’s because I wish I liked them. Red seedless (which I used) are the most tolerable. I can’t stand green grapes, those big purplish-black grapes, and any grapes with seeds.
