This granola is very good for you, easy to make and sooooooooooo deeeelicious!

It is full of “good” fats, omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fiber! This granola will help control your blood sugar levels, and leave you feeling full! YAY!!

You’ll wanna gobble it up as a cereal (breakfast or snack!), eat it the way it is, or you can place it in mason jars and give it to family and friends as gifts!
