Granola has a bad rap. Most store-bought are full of processed oils, tons of sugars, and ingredients that aren't recognizable by mother nature. Many also have GMO's which wreak havoc on our digestive system and make pesticides even harder for the body to break down!
I have yet to find a legit granola I like. So of course, I had to make my own!
This is a yummy granola recipe I love to serve with sliced apples, bananas, raisins, cinnamon (even more!), hemp & chia seeds, and cashew milk. It's super quick and simple to throw together, bake, enjoy. It's yummy and filling!
When I was inspired to make this, I was literally in the middle of cleaning and a craving for granola came on strong. I dropped everything preheated the oven and went to work... unsure of what kind of granola I was going to create.
I wanted to make it simple... I've created granola with lots of dried fruits but it just seemed to limit how we could use it. Personally I prefer the oats and seeds more than anything else so this was right up my alley. The beautiful thing is you can always make it different... the options are endless!
