Do you love granola? Great, me too!
Yogurt with berries and granola, or granola with your favorite milk/nut milk is a nutritious breakfast or a great snack. Not only is it filling and good for you, but homemade granola is also made with pantry staples and makes a great gift.
The recipe is simple and tasty. It is crunchy and slightly sweet, but the best part is that it is totally customizable. You can use this recipe as a base and add your own mix-ins, or even eliminate some of the ingredients for a simple cereal.
The whole grain oats (gluten-free if you prefer) are a great whole grain source of soluble fiber, and the almonds provide monounsaturated fat, fiber and some protein. Maple syrup is an ideal natural sweetener, and the cinnamon adds a nice warmth. Also, don’t skip the salt! A little bit goes a long way, and it helps to bring out the sweetness from the maple syrup.
Layering this granola with fresh fruit and yogurt makes a delicious parfait.
You can also serve with your milk of choice or just eat it by the handful! This recipe is IBS and Low-FODMAP friendly and can easily be made acid reflux and GERD friendly by removing the cinnamon, if that is your dietary trigger. I hope you enjoy it!
