Normal granola is often delicious and a great breakfast recipe, but is often filled with fat and high in calories. My version of a more healthy breakfast granola is packed with flavor, but none of the fats that regular granola has and is so much lower in calories.
Top this granola with your favorite soy or almond milk and you have a filling and healthy breakfast.
Healthy Breakfast Granola packs an Energy Punch.
The trick to making a healthier version of granola is being smart about the ingredients. There is no need for lots of brown sugar, honey or other sweeteners.
Dried fruit is quite sweet on it’s own and, to be honest, I have never really wanted a lot of sweetness in the morning anyway. At this time of the day, I am looking for something that will give me energy until lunch time, and the nuts will do that in spades.
If you want a sweeter breakfast, you can add sugar, steviaor a sweetener of your choice.
