This recipe will add the spring into your step every morning. I LOVE eating granola in the morning's but unfortunately, a lot of the store bought ones are full of sugar and additives. The worst thing you can do is load up your body with refined sugar in the morning, as you can suffer from a blood sugar spike and then crash later during the day. Making your own is so easy and much healthier for you.
This is a standard recipe of Oat and Rice Granola but you can always mix it up and add things that you love such as other nuts, spices and some dried fruits like goji berries (just don't go overboard on these).
