This delicious, wholesome homemade granola is a staple in my household! It is one of my favorite go-to breakfast or snack foods. Pour it over with almond milk, top it over yogurt and berries, or simply grab a handful during those pesky snack attacks!
Best thing about this? It's so cheap and easy to make! Not to mention healthy. Made with whole grains, healthy fats, and natural sweeteners!
Plus, they're incredibly versatile! Don't like coconut? Leave 'em out. Have a nut-allergy? Use seeds instead. Want some extra indulgence? Throw in some chocolate chips. If you want chunkier clusters, use a thicker stickier syrup like brown rice syrup or honey! The world is your oyster, or in this case, granola. Mmm... Granola...
