Nothing makes a house smell better than fresh baked granola. It'll make you feel like you actually live in a farmhouse when you make granola from scratch.
Benefits from granola:
It's high in fiber which helps lower blood pressure, reduce cholesterol, improve blood sugars, and improves gut health.
It's a good source of protein. With all of the added nuts to the recipe you're adding good fats and protein into your diet.
Granola is a great way to add fruits to the day. I like to add all kinds of berries to the top of my granola as I eat it as a cereal. Adding fruit adds antioxidants, which help fight against cancer. Berries are also a good source of fiber. So add those berries to your granola.
