Hello & Happy Saturday!
If there is one concept I love making from scratch, it’s granola. I typically always reach for my basic avocado toast, but some days I’m craving something a lil sweet and homemade granola is just so easy!
Let’s be honest, right now, the market is saturated with ready made granola. Let’s also be honest, that’s because everyone loves a good granola, it’s cheap to make, making the profit margins very high. These products are also very high in sugar and feature additives to make them shelf stable. That being said, you can skip all of that and control the sugar content and just make it yourself!
I don’t do a lot of oatmeal today, but I love oats and find them not only nutrient dense, but nostalgic. Morning oatmeal was my fathers go to, so I love to work it in where I can as it’s fiber packed, filling, affordable, and can even make a good flour alternative for various concepts.
What’s great about this homemade granola? It features homemade dehydrated apples, it’s the saving grace concept for apples on their way out, has minimal ingredients, minimal added sugar, features crispy pecans, superfoods like quinoa and chia seeds for an added protein boost, pecans add healthy fats, it’s gluten free, can easily be made in bulk, given as a holiday gift, perfect for fall + winter, and is my new favorite granola!!
