Granola is such a versatile food and one of the staples on my grocery list. You can eat granola with greek yogurt, with a splash of almond milk in a bowl, on top of smoothies, as a sweet treat for a “healthy dessert”, really the list is endless. However, one thing I DON’T love about granola is how expensive it can be! Sure, you may be able to find a generic granola in the cereal aisle for 4 bucks, but I’d be willing to bet it’s got 20+ grams of sugar in it. No thank you! I opt for only healthy granola products, usually either KIND, Bear Naked, or Purely Elizabeth. But as mentioned above, these healthy granola brands are a wallet buster if you’re trying to grocery shop on a budget. Which, hello, it’s me we are talking about here.
So what’s a girl got to do to get healthy granola on a budget? Make her own, of course 🙂 And don’t worry, friends, even if you have absolutely zero cooking skills, you can make this granola. It’s SO easy! Prep time literally takes about 5 minutes. Then you can sit back and let the oven do the work! The only ingredients in this healthy granola are oats, coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, seeds, and slivered almonds. It’s husband approved and only has 152 calories and 6g of sugar per 1/4 cup. Oh and there are 24 servings per recipe, so talk about bang for your buck! Other granola brands give you such a small bag it’s gone in about 3 days. And that’s just if you’re husband or kids don’t get to it first.
