Mornings are hard. Eating healthy, most of the time, is way harder. So one thing that can help minimize the thought process of what to eat in the morning is…drum roll please…granola! This healthy, fiber-filled breakfast favorite is not only easy to make at home but is versatile. So, basically, it’s bound to be your soon go-to grab-and-go food item. Worry not, these recipes won’t have you slaving in the kitchen, we’re kind like that. There are many benefits to being able to make your own granola, compared to store-brought which can sometimes have high sugar levels or yucky additives. Here’s a few ways that mixing up this crunchy treat is good for you: + You can control the amount of sugar you put into the mix. Are you trying to cut back? Use some maple syrup as a sweetener. Want to go for a sugar-induced coma? Pour in the dark chocolate chips. + You can add extra yummies that will help boost the level of healthy goodness of your granola. Add some goji berries for a tart punch that provides a myriad benefits. + You can choose the oil to bake your granola in. Not really one for palm oil or plain jane vegetable oil? Kick them to the curb and step up your nutritional game with coconut oil!
