DO YOU LOVE GRANOLA? ME TOO!
I know we can all appreciate a quick breakfast or snack, and this classic granola is perfect!
After I became a Mom I appreciated a quick breakfast I could give my kids even more! For most, cereal is the easy go-to but those boxes tend to be full of tons of sugar and artificial ingredients… not something I want to be giving my kids (or me)!
Buying artisanal granolas is a nice idea, but that can get expensive fast!
This granola makes a wonderful snack or breakfast. It also stores beautifully. Make a double batch for home or spread the love and share as a nice homemade gift!
My recipe is low in sugar and big on fiber. And while the recipe is filled with nothing but good stuff, too much of anything is never a good thing!
The recipe makes about 5 cups and I recommend a single serving to be no more than 1/2 a cup. Pair it with greek yogurt, or coconut yogurt to complete the meal and get in those healthy fats.
