HOMEMADE GRANOLA

IMG_0081[1]Granola is so addictive in general but wait until you taste my two versions below! Sweet, fruity, chocolatey, salty – it is so MOREISH! You will need to be extra careful not to eat the whole batch in one sitting (especially the chocolate granola). Mix it up by sprinkling it over yogurt, having it with milk or you know, just straight out of the jar!

Just be mindful when eating this granola as just because it is homemade, doesn’t mean that the calories aren’t there.
