Sweet and crunchy granola mix which is filled with a lot of almond and cinnamon flavours. This is the easiest way to start a healthy habit which is homemade.
I am a little obsessed and attached with granola. I can't get enough of it. Homemade granola you may think as a tough job to make but believe me its the easiest thing in the world. You don't need any extra effort and can be baked in a single bowl.
How to eat this?
Well, I find its best as a munching snack for the evening. But you can also have it at breakfast. Top it with some greek yoghurt and fresh fruits and you are good to go. If you have any other way to eat this then do let me know the comments..
What makes this the best granola?
I simply love the vanilla flavour when combined with almond. Addition of cinnamon and nutmeg adds a freshness to the overall taste. With so many tastes it's still so light and tasty. My husband also find it a go-to snack for him.

120 g sliced almonds
