LOW CARB GRANOLA (GF)
I'd like to pass on a great recipe that I discovered on YouTube recently and tried. If you've never checked out HomeMade Healthy be sure and do so for some awesome recipes.
I loved this recipe! I made a larger batch and made some adjustments for myself, just because I always do. I used what I had on hand and wanted a large batch. Her recipe is in the notes under her video. I have never really been a granola eater, but I just became one. I had a half cup this morning with a little Cashew milk and it was very filling. I woke up this morning at 4 a.m. before the Rooster crowed and had breakfast and it's 9:30 now and I am not at all hungry. I plan on heading out to an exercise class this morning at 10:30 so I'm fueled for the morning.
Thank you Lisa and Rob for a great recipe!
Here is my adaptation...
