GOURMET GRANOLA

Granola is one of those healthy snacks that looks easy enough to make, but is even easier to drop some serious coin on at the grocery, market or gourmet shop. It can seem ‘super healthy' but have excessive refined sugar hidden within fancy packaging. I enjoy making my granola, as I control the sweetness and throw in my favourite nuts, seeds and fruits. With the right base recipe, granola can be tailored suit all personal preferences.
