This easy granola comes together in less than 25 minutes and is packed full of brain healthy fats and anti-inflammatory spices.
I freaking love granola. It’s crispy, crunchy, slightly sweet and packed full of hardy goodness. I hope I’m not alone in this because awkwarrrrd.
Granola can kind of get a bad wrap because of all the added sweeteners creating excess sugars and the use inflammatory oils. Plus, with the all the recent media attention regarding contaminated grains, I figure it would be the perfect time to prove that granola doesn’t have to be a sugar bomb AND still taste good.
This recipe doesn’t use any inflammatory oils and BONUS: I used an anti-inflammatory spice blend from Further Food (ahealthyharmony saves you at checkout) that is well…. anti-inflammatory. I know, I have a way with words.
Best part? only 1/3 cup of maple syrup is used to sweeten this recipe! You are getting a minimal amount of sugar when you take into account how much gf grains, seeds and nuts are used.
AKA, you CAN have your granola and eat it too.
I REALLY hope you love this recipe as much as my family does! If you decide to make it, please do share your creation on Instagram by tagging #ahealthyharmony @ahealthyharmony. Your support means the world and I’d love to show you mine!
