Granola is one of my favorite sweet snacks or wholesome desserts. The taste is delicious, the crunchiness relaxing and it’s also extremely easy to carry around or add to anything you’re eating, such as fruit salad or yogurt. Do I need to say more? For those who simply love making things from scratch, here’s an incredibly tasty granola recipe a friend shared with me a few weeks ago. I think this would make a perfect holiday gift if you put it in cute labeled, or decorated, jars. I know I would love to get something like this for Christmas. Wouldn’t you? MORE + LESS -

Expert Tips

  • This granola doesn’t have any added sugar, but if you want to lower the natural sugar content even further, skip the dried fruits.
  • Use any kind of nuts or dried fruits you want. You can also add dried coconut flakes for an extra layer of flavor, or use olive oil instead of coconut oil.
