Super Simple 1- bowl PB Almond Granola

January 22, 2018

Greeting fellow foodies,

 

Everybody loves a good muffin, tender scone, or sweet cinnamon roll for breakfast. What is easier to make and also doubles as a quick afternoon snack? Granola! Not only is it easy to make, you can make it as sweet as you want it to be!

 

Don't care for coconut flakes in your granola? Leave it out. Love dried fruit? Pick your favorite and add it at the end. Think cashews are better than almonds? Substitute 'em. Use this recipe as a base and tweak it to your cravings.

 

Eat this granola solo. Eat it with fruit and almond butter. Eat it over your favorite ice cream.
