If you buy Granola from your local supermarket, stop right now. They’re are loaded with sugar and while you think you are opting for the healthy choice, you would be better off having a chocolate bar! Granola is so easy to make, not to mention cheaper, that there is no excuse for not making it yourself. It only takes a few minutes to put together and you can choose whatever flavour you fancy. The options are endless.
I tend to pick Granola throughout the day, straight from the jar, as a little snack, but it’s great as a breakfast with yogurt and fruit. It fills you up for hours so you can start your day full of energy.
I usually just mix oats, coconut oil, sugar and whichever nuts and dried fruit I have on hands. This time, I have tried adding quinoa and it was lovely. It gave an extra crunch which was really good. If you don’t have quinoa in your cupboard, getting some would be a great idea as it contains a good amount of protein, vitamin E, B and fiber but you could just omit it and up the oats instead.
