Granola has a healthy reputation, but most of the time, it’s filled with sugar! This version uses a small amount of maple syrup and protein-rich almond butter and almonds for a filling, low-sugar breakfast. Serve with greek yogurt and fresh fruit for a complete meal.

 

Ingredients:

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup almond butter

2 cups oats

3/4 cup chopped almonds

1 tsp cinnamon

pinch of salt

 

Instructions:

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Stir together maple syrup and almond butter.

Combine remaining dry ingredients in small bowl.

Add syrup and almond butter to dry ingredients and stir until combined, mixture should be chunky.

Spread out on baking sheet and bake for about 20 minutes, until golden brown, stirring after 10 minutes.

Let cool before serving. Store in an airtight container.
