Homemade Low Sugar Granola
I’m a huge breakfast lover – eggs, bagels, omelettes, muffins – you name it, I love it. Some mornings I have time to cook, some I don’t. The mornings I’m scrambling to keep my life in order, I’m wanting something quick & easy that doesn’t require a lot (if any) cooking. This homemade low sugar granola is a perfect grab-and-go breakfast. I love making this homemade low sugar granola because I can make several different versions using my favorite ingredients. Plus, I know exactly what I’m putting in it – some store bought brands are incredibly high in sugar and/or fat, and low in protein and/or fiber, so make sure you compare food labels when you’re shopping! One of my favorite ways to eat this is sprinkled on top of some Greek yogurt.
