I get really upset when I read the ingredients on most granola's at the store. Tons of sugar, or butter, or both! They have lots of fat too, even the low-fat granola isn't very good for you AT ALL and tends to be extremely high in calories. I saw this as a challenge, and decided to make my own version, guilt-free!

This is amazing, you can eat it as a snack alone (ziploc baggy), sprinkle just a little for a crunch on non-fat greek yogurt, or with some almond milk or skim milk, even with fresh fruit. Such a good healthier way to get your granola fix <3
