Homemade Granola – Quick and Healthy Breakfast

 

Granola is such a great solution to a quick breakfast. You only have to pour it into a bowl, add your favourite type of milk or yoghurt and voila, ready to eat!

Of course, you can also add some fruit and honey or another sweetener if you wish and have time. But it is not necessary as there is already so much in granola itself: oats, nuts, dried fruit, etc.

However, if you look closely at the ingredients list on some of the pre-packaged granola, you may find out there it contains too many additives that are not necessarily the healthiest.

The best way to overcome this problem is to make your granola. It will include exactly what you like and want. Furthermore, you will be able to limit the amounts of sugar and fat, too.

And making it is easy: it is just a question of mixing the ingredients and putting them into an oven. The only problem with the homemade granola may be that because it tastes so good, you will also have it at other times than breakfast.

P.S. Homemade Granola is great but if you don’t have time to make it {or you have just run out of it!}, you can always have delicious Fruity Porridge 🙂
