granola recipes like smoothie bowls with fruit

You have got to check out these easy granola recipes! Whether you are looking for a delicious breakfast or a snack option, granola is the answer. Crunchy, sweet, salty or both, granola is the perfect way to fuel you up when hunger strikes. Granola is pretty much consumed daily in our house whether as part of a meal or just by the handful.

The best part about making your own granola is that you get to control what goes in it. Many store bought granolas are full of sugar and artificial ingredients. You’ll notice many of these delicious easy granola recipes have very few ingredients or lots of natural ingredients like nuts, honey, and fruits.

Serve your granola over yogurt with fruit, a drizzle of honey or proportion it out and take it on the go with you to fuel you up on a busy day. We also love granola on ice cream. Be sure to check out these different granola recipes! You can make your granola in the oven, stove top and even the slow cooker!
