I have always been a huge fan of granola, but it's usually loaded with processed ingredients and added fat (which I am definitely NOT a fan of).This recipe is free of added sugar, gluten-free, oil-free and made with simple, whole food ingredients that are absolutely delicious! Top with almond milk for a scrumptious, low-fat breakfast cereal or enjoy as is for a snack.
This granola is a great, kid-friendly recipe that is easy to make and perfect to take to school or work.
