09 Nov Sheila’s Homemade Granola
One of my goals of 2015 is to eat healthier and consume less sugar. One of my “go to” snacks is Greek yogurt, 1 teaspoon of agave nectar, and 1/4 cup of granola. I LOVE this stuff! It’s filling, healthy, and a sweet treat during the afternoon that packs some protein. The problem is, is that most granola mix from the store and VERY high in sugar. I don’t honestly need that much sugar in my granola, I really just like it for the texture.
I remembered that my MOL makes her own granola and it is totally delicious! It was crunchy, sweet, but not too sweet. She sent me the recipe and I made it! IT WAS DELICIOUS! I only swapped the raisins for cranberries in mine (my husband doesn’t like raisins) and the wheat germ with ground flax seed.
