Summer has been great and all but it’s time to step aside – IT’S FALL SEASON, BABY! This granola is the perfect entry into a fall which includes a dash of cinnamon to get you in the mood. Plus, who here is ready fo a new week? I know I am!
Last week was a doozy and I’m ready to start off on the right foot which includes a delightful breakfast. Meet your new morning favorite, a simple almond + honey granola that will add a little pizzaz to your morning breakfasts this week.
This is an easy recipe to make, the most time consuming part is the baking which is a win in my book. Once you pop it in the oven you’re on your way to a delicious yogurt parfait or a simple snack.
The best thing about this recipe is that it’s packed with micro and macro nutrients such as protein & fiber from chia seeds, flax, and nuts. A plethora of vitamins & minerals from all ingredients such as magnesium, vitamin B, calcium, and zine (just to name a few). I feel like granola gets a bad reputation for being a “carb” but remember all foods should be welcome in our diet.
As always, you’ll want to make sure you have the recommended kitchen items to make this amazing masterpiece.
