An energy boosting breakfast and a good source of protein and fiber, and a great way to start a day! If you have never made granola before, give our recipe a try! My granola is filled with rolled oats, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, shaved almonds, cashews, dried cranberries, raisins and honey. The recipe is delicious and crunchy - and you can customize it according to what you like! You can replace your favorite nut or dried fruit, and also replace the honey with maple syrup!
Enjoy it for breakfast with your favorite milk (almond milk for vegans) or yogurt topped with some fresh fruits. You can even eat it on its own on dry for snacking! Enjoy!
