My go-to recipe for classic granola is full of nuts and coconut, and has a little less sugar than typical granola – making it the perfect healthy breakfast!
I don’t know about you, but I definitely get in breakfast routines. I will eat the same thing every weekday morning for weeks or even months at a time. The past few weeks it has been a mini bagel with cream cheese and fresh berries, but for pretty much all of June and July it was exactly what is pictured here – fresh fruit (preferably a ripe peach with some berries) with Greek yogurt and my classic granola. I go through this breakfast phase pretty much every summer – the second it starts to get warm, I just crave a granola parfait. And I love making it with homemade granola – I think it is so much better than store bought!
Homemade granola is really easy to make, and this recipe makes a ton so it can last you a really long time. I keep mine in the freezer to make sure it stays nice and fresh. I love this recipe because it isn’t overpoweringly sweet – it uses agave for the sweetener and doesn’t add quite as much as many granola recipes. It is full of nuts and coconut, my favorite granola ingredients. And there is no dried fruit! I’m really not a dried fruit fan, and so many store bought granolas are full of raisins or cranberries – I am always picking around them. That’s the advantage of making your own – you get to decide what goes in it! If you like things a little sweeter, add some more agave! Or you could use honey or maple syrup. You can use whatever nuts or seeds you like. The possibilities are endless!
Now here are some of my weekend breakfast favorites!
