Registered Dietitian Tips:

  • This granola is incredibly versatile.
  • Turn into a balanced meal by adding plain yogurt and fruit.
  • Want it sweeter? Add a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
  • For an extra protein kick, add more nuts to the recipe or serve as is with Greek style yogurt instead of regular.
  • For a quick, on the go snack, carry a small airtight bag of this in your backpack or purse. It’s a great snack for commuting because it’s dry, compact, and won’t spoil.
