10 Oct Homemade Granola Bowl
BREAKFAST, BRUNCH OR SNACKI always have granola in my cupboards! It’s a necessity to my lifestyle! Satisfying all my needs! delicious, filling and full of nutty protein. Be careful when you go into a superstore to check the ingredients as many granola’s are packed with added sugars and palm oil. Sugar feeds diseases, so it’s best to steer clear and use replacements if you have a sweet tooth. I usually make a large batch and have it ready to enjoy throughout the busy week. I often bring it to work to make my colleagues jealous :). TO SERVE: Pour oat milk (or your desired milk) with fresh berries and some dried fruits. This nutty granola will be sure to leave you feeling satisfied. The main base is nuts, the grains are jumbo oats and amaranth, with a sprinkle of milled flaxseeds which are high in omega 3. Lastly, a sprinkle of psyllium husks. Drizzle with an extra dollop of BNUTZ.
