Who doesn’t love a yummy bowl of crunchy granola!! I love mine with a dash of almond milk or sprinkled over some yoghurt or porridge. A lot of granola are loaded with sugar to sweeten them up. This recipe contains honey, which is a natural sweetener and binds all the ingredient together. Stevia can also be used if desired and contains only 2 kcal per teaspoon!!
Granola is a good source of healthy fats that are found in the nuts. Oats are high in fibre and a low GI food which means a steady release of energy.
Here’s my take on a healthy granola, let me know if you try it out!!
