Homemade Granola

It’s always better when you make it yourself… most of the time. But, when it comes to this granola, the answer is definitely! It’s really easy and makes a ton. I got the original recipe from 100 Days of Real Food. If you haven’t looked into eating clean and eating real food, this is the website for you! This granola has 100% real food ingredients.

I always sub at least one of the ingredients for whatever reason. This particular granola has cashews, slivered almonds, pistachios, sunflower seeds, oats, and coconut.

Yum!
