Today I am compelled to cook a versatile breakfast mainstay.
Who didn’t love boxed granola as a kid? I’d eat it straight out of the box, often when no one was looking making it feel like I was getting away with something. Handfuls of sugary crunchy clusters were gobbled up all the while oblivious to the high fat and sugar content and seemingly small serving size.
Todays homemade granolas are not only much healthier they are very customizable to suit any taste. I enjoy my granola not too sweet, with lots of coconut and served with a good dose of vanilla or coconut yogurt.
What I love about this recipe is that it is made with items usually on hand and supplies a quick nutritious breakfast for days. The fruit and nuts can be changed up to suit my mood and best of all there’s no box to be found.
