Home Made Granola
Granola is a mixture of oat flakes, dried fruit and honey, it is baked in the oven with oil or natural syrups such as agave or rice.
It is usually consumed for breakfast with yogurt, milk, fresh fruit of your choice but also as a base for cheesecake.
Designed by John Harvey Kellogg in 1878, the inventor of the famous “Cornflakes”, as a food designed to promote proper nutrition.
The great thing about granola is its versatility.
We can customize it as we want, such as dried fruit, with pieces of chocolate or much more.
I prefer to make it at home because I choose the ingredients and then it is certainly healthier and tastier than packaged ones.
