My sweet boyfriend’s even sweeter mother, Amy, has sent us homemade granolas and cereals in her care packages. Total game changer in the granola world, people. It’s not too sugary, there’s a delicious hint of salty/savory flavor, and the best part is it’s not full of butter. Plus, it’s so easy peasy to make! I got all of my dry ingredients from Natural Grocers/Vitamin Cottage. They have great bulk items for cheap. Amy adapted her recipes from Sara Kate Gillingham of The Kitchn.
Pour some in a bowl with almond milk and make it cereal, sprinkle it on a green smoothie, make a fruit and Greek yogurt parfait, or simply eat it by itself. Trust me, it’s that good. Dangerous good. Addictive good.
You could make fabulous gifts for any occasion – Christmas, Birthdays, Showers, etc. All you would need is the granola, a mason jar, and some cutesy twine and boom: a perfect homemade present, right?!
