Weekly Recipe: Homemade Crunchy Granola

Granola recipe
Granola is tempting, isn’t it? Unfortunately, it seems impossible to find a healthy one in the supermarket. Checking the ingredients list is frustrating. They are all loaded with sugar and therefore, definitely not helping to reach your goal.

No need to feel sorry for yourself anymore. It’s so easy to make your own granola! And it actually tastes a lot better, too! Combine it with some fresh fruits, yogurt or almond milk and celebrate your breakfast!

Healthy granola, here we go:
