Honey Almond Granola

After months of procrastination the “Recipe Index” page is {finally} complete! The thought of including an index page has been on my mind for so long. Yesterday I am proud to say I completed that task. No more scrolling. No more hunting. Just one click. Take a look!

For the next couple weeks, the hubs and I are kicking desserts and processed food to the curb. We have indulged in the amazing California food excessively. I wanted a sweet, yet healthy tasting snack to satisy those cravings. This “no bake” granola can be eaten alone or transformed into granola bars. I made this granola recipe last year but changed up a few ingredients.

If the granola stays in the freezer you can cut them into granola bars. Refrigerator? Not so much. Definitely store in fridge and top on yogurt or oatmeal. The possibilities are endless.
