I love eating this homemade granola just about every morning with yoghurt and fruit, or on top of smoothie bowls. Sometimes I even snack on it throughout the day.
I must say that there is something so comforting and rustic about making your own homemade granola, its just so much better than store bought. I have actually stopped eating store bought granola, because this homemade version is just so dang good. Once you start making your own homemade granola you will never turn back.
I love how you can take simple ingredients and turn it in to something amazing that you want to everyday. This recipe has a bunch of different nuts and seeds as well as some healthy whole grains such as oats and buckwheat. So it will definitely keep you full for long.
In this recipe you will notice that I don’t use a ton of sweetener. I find the store bought versions to by way to sweet and I actually like to control the sugar content in my food. I also like to sweeten my food with natural sugars, so if I am making granola with yoghurt I will add a fruit to make it sweeter.
