The Best Homemade Granola (so far)


Jars and jars...
No added sugar or additives, that's why.

I have been making this granola since last year. It goes so well with many things - yogurt, sprinkle on salad, or just eat as a snack mix.

This is definitely #promdiet worthy as it has no added sugar and relies on the flavour of natural ingredients.
