I love, love, love, granola for breakfast. On my yogurt, over milk, or just out of my hand. I can seriously eat through a whole box if no one is looking. So every time I buy another $5 box of granola, I always cringe. Granola is not cheap! I’m sure you know this. Homemade granola on the other hand, is always easy to make and much, much cheaper. It’s so versatile to what you have in the kitchen I always ask myself, “Why don’t I make granola t home more often?” Oh right. Time. Well I finally found the time!
This granola is a basic honey almond granola and can be adapted to your taste buds and pantry. It has almonds, coconut, honey, vanilla, flax, and spiced with cinnamon. Don’t have almonds, add pecans or pistachios. No honey? Try maple syrup or agave nectar. Not a fan of coconut (ok, totally don’t get that at all), then leave it out if you must. The point is suit it to your needs! I feel like I don’t need to tell you that. You get the idea. This makes a good deal of granola that will keep you going all week and keep a few extra dollars in your pocket. And I am all for that.
Happy breakfast everyone.
