Granola is sometimes packed with refined carbohydrates and lots of added sugar. But this homemade grain-free granola is packed with nutrient-dense ingredients like nuts and seeds instead, making it a super-healthy breakfast and snack option. Sprinkle it over your favorite yogurt, oatmeal, “nice” cream, or ice cream and then add some fresh blueberries, strawberries, or chopped apples for natural sweetness.
