Homemade Granola

Making granola at home means you can control how much sugar and fat go in. You can also change up the ingredients to match what you have on hand.

This makes a great breakfast or snack. Serve it just like that, on its own; or with almond, rice, flax or soy milk and fresh blueberries. And because it’s macro-balanced, it’s perfect for post-exercise recovery.
