I adore granola – nutty, crunchy, sweet, and salty – what’s not to like? Except I find that most homemade and store bought granola is packed with calories, fat, and sugar. Not the best combination since most of us reach for granola as a “healthier” choice. So for the past few weeks, I have been working on creating my own homemade granola that cuts back on some of the sugar, fat, and calories. This has around 1/3 less calories than traditional granola and can be customized any way you like. Personally I like to add flax, chia, and almonds to pack in the protein and fiber; but any nuts or seeds will work. I also purposefully leave out the dried fruit (packed with calories and sugar) and opt for adding fresh fruit instead.
