Granola. I love it. All of it.
Well, that’s kind of a lie. I love my homemade HEALTHY granola that isnt loaded with crap sugar and tons of mystery ingredients that none of us can actually pronounce. Seriously though, store bought granola is hella dangerous. That shit is fillllllllllledddddddddddddddd (written really long so I make sure I get your attention) with sugar. A little sugar is good. A lot of corn syrup is bad. Very bad.
Anyways, my point it: make your own granola. It will taste better and make you feel better because it is wholesome and natural. In the photos above I am eating one of my fave granola recipes, the classic Skinny Belle Granola (think almonds, coconut, cranberries… yaaaaaaassss) with 0% unsweetened greek yogurt and grapefruit. GET. IN. MY. BELLY.
Another great recipe is my Pumpkin Pie Granola. I know its not eat-everything-pumpkin-flavoured-and-be-super-basic season right now, but I personally like to eat this recipe year round. ALSO. Can we talk about the whole “pumpkin” and “basic” thing? I would like to take a stand for my right to love pumpkin without being basic. PSL’s are basic (that’s a for sure) but pumpkin in general is not. *Phew* Glad I got that off my chest. Real deep stuff happening here today friends.
On another note, HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!!! Our beautiful country is 148 years old today. Though we don’t look a day over 29 😉
Anyways, I’m off to the beach! Enjoy these granola recipes, they are the best!
