Healthy Cranberry & Coconut Granola

Karen

Hi Yvonne,

Any chance you could forward me on a simple breakfast granola recipe that I can bake at home as I’m on a health kick and need food that fills me up in the morning stopping me from dipping into the snack cupboard in work lol.

Thanks a million,

Karen.

Hi Karen 

Hope life is good lovely to hear from you don’t worry your not the only one finding it hard to eat well at the moment I think everyone is now gearing up for Santa. The below recipe is a go to for my market stall customers the original recipe was given to me by a good friend but I tweaked it as I never use any oils or sugar when baking my granolas making them even more nutritious. Give it a go and let me know what you think of it.
