A Healthier Granola

How easy it is to get into a breakfast rut! I’m not a huge fan of the typical breakfast foods, so an option with a crunchy granola sprinkled over Greek yogurt and fresh fruit makes my morning happy!

I enjoy trying different granola recipes, and while I love my old standby recipe, my new find from Skinny Ms is a delicious addition to my granola choices! This one has no dried fruits in order to keep it lower in sugar, but I didn’t miss them! I did add walnuts, though it’s not in the original recipe.

This has a nice toasty flavor and a good soft crunch! We love it!

So good over yogurt and fruit!

Healthier Granola

1 1/2 cups rolled oats gluten-free

1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

1/2 cup sesame seeds optional sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons honey

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Combine all ingredients. Evenly spread granola on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake granola 15 minutes, stirring after 8 minutes. Allow to cool completely before storing in a covered container.

Enjoy this delicious and healthy granola over oatmeal, as a breakfast cereal, or sprinkle over Greek yogurt.

What’s your go-to when you get into a breakfast rut?

  1. Yum. I’ll have to try it. I usually make your “old standby.” 😃 I make it without the dried fruit, and add freeze dried when I’m ready to eat it. Great stuff!
