I’m coming at you with another recipe today! I know I’ve been MIA the past 2 days which is due to technical difficulties with my laptop, unfortunately. In terms of the self-care challenge — it will be moved to next Sunday, which gives you more time to practice last week’s gratitude exercise.
Now to the recipe — I love using this granola for whenever I want cereal or healthier option instead of store bought. The best part is you get to control how much sugar is in it! This recipe is super simple and good amount for your whole family to enjoy. What I also enjoy about this is that it keeps you fuller than regular granola, due to the all the nuts and seeds in it. You can of course tailor this to however you’d like! Put whatever ingredients you please 🙂
First, preheat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Next, mix in your dry ingredients, minus the goji berries.
Then, mix in maple syrup, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt.
Stir it all together and put it in a baking sheet with parchment paper (I ran out). Put it in the oven for 40 minutes — stirring every 10 minutes. Monitor it to make sure it doesn’t burn. Let it cool for a few minutes and add in your berries!
That’s all! Hope you enjoy!
