Coconut Homemade Granola

IMG_2172

Oh boy this granola is addictive! It is low in sugar, filled with delicious whole ingredients and has been being devoured by the jar in our apartment lately. My personal favorite way to enjoy this granola is right out of the jar, or poured over some coconut yogurt. You can be creative and really adapt this recipe in many ways to make it your own by added different nuts, dried fruit, chocolate, etc.

But I love this particular combination which is perfect for my taste buds. If you are looking for a health snack or a new breakfast option you will definitely have to give this one a try and let me know what you think!
