Chocolate and ricotta mousse with a granola cameo

We need more healthy food in our diets. At least, I know I do! With that in mind, I'm glad I'm lucky enough to know someone who's willing to share healthy recipes! You can visit Chef Rachel at her blog for recipes like chocolate and ricotta mousse.

It was delicious, but I dressed it up with some homemade granola--a version of this one, using the same cooking method and just using the quick oats, nuts, and dried fruit I had on hand. I traded the butter and brown sugar for 1/4 cup canola oil, 1/2 cup honey, and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup to make it a little more waist line friendly:

It made for a great texture and flavor addition!
