Classic Granola

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.

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!

We are throwing a party today! It is a BABY SHOWER for my good friend Zainab aka Blahnik Baker. Zainab was one of my first blog friends, and she is absolutely amazing. In addition to being an incredible baker, she is such a great person – so supportive, kind and fun! She is going to be the most amazing mom, and I’m so happy to be celebrating her today!
