September 19, 2020

This Homemade Granola recipe is a nutritious crowd pleaser, working to satisfy the whole family! Making a large batch leaves you feeling well prepared for both on the go and at home breakfasts in the week ahead. Rich in plant based protein, healthy fats and fibre, it works as a well balanced way to start the day.
Filled with autumnal flavours, be sure to give it a go in the coming months and let us know what you think.
