Granola: A crowd favorite for as long as the world has been turning (actually don’t quote me on that) but seriously, I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t love it. It is a great substitute for high sugar cereals, sprinkled on top of smoothies or oatmeal or a bowl of yoghurt, heck it’s probably great on anything. But the problem with granola (or at least the store bought kind) is that it is usually ridiculously high in sugar! So, I took it upon myself to create my own healthier version that is low in sugar & high in protein, without lacking flavor and crunch. By adding Shakeology, a superfood protein supplement, I was able to increase the micronutrient count of this granola batch as well as increasing the protein count too. I recommend the Vegan Vanilla and only use Shakeology as my protein supplement, so cannot vouch that other brands will have the same consistency or flavor as I intended.
Now although I included almonds and a variety of seeds in my recipe below, keep in mind that almost any combination will work. Perhaps try your own combination using walnuts, flaxseeds, pecans…get creative and better yet get seasonal! My version below is sweetened with honey and sultanas but think cranberries in the winter and cherries in the summer.
