Crunchy, a little sweet and super nutritious. Homemade granola is simple to make and super delicious! This is one of my favorite things to make on the weekend. Here is the recipe for crunchy coconut granola. Loaded with chia seeds, coconut, extra light olive oil to provide a hefty dose of healthy fats and fiber to keep you full all morning. Try mixing in different fruits for different flavors. I used a few dates this time but using freeze dried fruit to mix in at the end is also a great way to add flavor and be histamine friendly.
