Even if you have a ruthless sweet tooth, splurging on something too sugary first thing in the morning just doesn’t feel right. Ditch the donuts! Abandon the flavored oatmeal. Back away from the frosted breakfast cereals. Instead, whip a batch of crunchy, wholesome, homemade granola, made with all-natural ingredients that keep your taste buds happy and your body well-fueled until lunchtime. This recipe combines rolled oats, crunchy nuts and superfood seeds, coated with a layer creamy almond butter and honey for rich, subtly sweet flavor and an extra boost of protein!
