We call this healthy granola recipe “Naked Granola” because we’ve taken out a lot of the sugar and oil found in store-bought granola, stripping it down so you get more of the ingredients you want from a granola – oats, nuts and seeds.


Making your own granola is super simple, and once you make this healthy granola recipe you’ll have a hard time going back to the store-bought varieties. Combine with yogurt or milk and some fresh fruit it makes the perfect breakfast.
