Crunchy Granola with your favourite yogurt and fresh berries is a great way to start your day or even better, a nice treat or pudding! Our recipe keeps the carbs to a minimal by removing the oats and using nuts instead. We also use less honey than your typical recipes. This granola is so tasty we recommend you save time and make a double or triple batch to last you a month.
