Sometimes, it’s breakfast, sometimes it’s a snack, but it always tastes like dessert!
I didn’t start making my own granola until pretty recently. I used to never really consider the store-bought kind to be unhealthy because it wasn’t a colorful cereal and I could eat it on yogurt and call it a balanced breakfast.
Unfortunately, I was wrong. Although, not all store-bought granolas are unhealthy! It just seems that most brands have high amounts of refined sugar and extra sweeteners. Two things that aren’t really going to benefit you in the morning.
To further convince you to make your own granola, let me remind you of all the amazing ingredients you can add into your own blend:
- seeds, seeds, seeds!
- dried fruit
- natural sweeteners
- variety of seasonings
- pureed fruit
Making granola is really a lot easier than you might think and the options are seriously endless. I like to snack on this recipe on it’s own or eat it with warmed apples or almond milk. I have it pictured here with plain Greek yogurt, blueberries and a drizzle or maple syrup.
