Crunchy-Munchy-Healthy Granola Recipe

Eating healthy doesn't have to be bland or boring, and having tasty snacks to indulge in is just as important as well-balanced meals.  Real people don't live on Kale alone! (especially kids)

Granola is one of those foods that began as a great idea, but gained a bad rap as bird food for hippy-types, and in all honesty, it often wasn't that great.  Wanting to cash-in on the health food craze, big manufacturers now fill store shelves with highly processed products with the word 'granola' on their label, but they're usually chocked full of very UN-healthful ingredients with little, if any, nutritional value. (even organic brands)

Our criteria when creating our own granola recipes was simple: it had to be tasty, healthy and easy to make.  Every ingredient in our Crunchy-Munchy version contains bunches of healthy benefits; vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, phytonutrients and antioxidants to fuel your body and keep your immune system strong.

As always, choose organic or GMO-free ingredients and indulge in the goodness of real granola.
