Homemade Granola

by | Jun 18, 2022 | Recipes

I love to have healthy snacks at hand when I am in a hurry. It makes life so much easier. My kids adore granola too. They either add it to their nut milk or use it as a nice addition to their morning millet or buckwheat meal. You can even have it by the spoon when you need a healthy snack to support your energy.

This granola is dairy-free and gluten-free.
