Healthy Baked Granola


Tired of your morning food routine? This healthy baked granola can spice up any boring breakfast! With only 6 ingredients, this granola is much healthier than anything you’ll find at the grocery store. It’s crunchy, chewy and sweet, with just the perfect hint of salt.  Use it to replace your cereal or add it to a smoothie bowl, yogurt or fresh fruit. It can also be used to make a killer trail mix!

I love dried fruit and have tried adding raisins and goji berries to this granola. I’ve found that it’s better to add the dried fruit after the granola is done baking, so the fruit doesn’t burn, but feel free to try out your own fancy granola experiments! ( I’m definitely trying chocolate chips next!)
