〰️Vanilla Almond Cinnamon Granola〰️

.
This granola is made of whole foods & natural sugars. Conventional granola’s can be filled with preservatives, butter, inflammatory oils, lots of sugar & high-fructose corn syrup. This makes granola much less healthy.
.
When you make your own, you can monitor the ingredients you put in to make it much healthier than conventional ones!
.
This is not to say all store bought granola is unhealthy, just be wary of the ingredients.
.
This is my go to granola recipe! It is filled with hearty , natural & healthy ingredients! It is full of fibre, healthy fats, protein, healthy carbs, & tons of vitamins (ie vitamin E, B vitamins, vitamin K) & minerals (ie calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, manganese, phosphorous & selenium) & antioxidants. It is nutrient dense, and you do not need a lot because it fills you up fast! It keeps you full long due to high fibre content.

Tip: make a big batch & double the recipe and keep in air tight containers on a cool place to last up to a month!

〰️Mix the warm mixture into the oats and stir together until dry ingredients are evenly coated.
〰️Line a pan with parchment paper & pour the granola in an even layer.
〰️Bake for 30 minutes at 300 degrees F, stirring the granola at the half way point.
〰️Remove from the oven & let sit for 15-30 minutes to harden and cool off.

Sprinkle some over yoghurt, have some with your milk of choice, put over your smoothie bowl or simply have on its own on the go!
