Homemade Healthy Granola

IMG_2578.JPG

 

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!!

    Great recipe, how long would this last in an airtight container?

    1. Hi Avril,
      Glad you like it!
      I would store the granola in an airtight container with the rest of our cereals for 1 month; because of the oil in it I wouldn’t keep it for any longer than that.
      It’s also suitable for freezing 👍🏻
