Homemade granola can be an healthy, delicious and comforting treat. Avoid the store bought granola that contain high amount of sugar and make your own healthier version. The base of our healthy granola recipe is whole oats. They are high in fiber, protein and are full of vitamins. For sweetener we use organic juice concentrate, try to find a concentrate that is full of only natural sweeteners.
This is one of those recipes that is easy to do. The measurements and ingredient list is not so important, ad what you have in your kitchen. It is a great way to get rid of those small packages of nuts and seeds.
One other advantage of making this healthy granola recipe is that your home will smell wonderful.
