Grain Free Goji Granola

Grain Free Goji Granola

I love something crunchy to add to smoothie bowls or on top of coconut yoghurt. When it comes to store bought granola, I found I was either spending too much or the product had too much sugar! I decided to make my own granola with my favourite ingredients and a controlled amount of sugar. This recipe contains a range of fatty acids in the range of nuts and seeds and the pop of flavour within the antioxidant rich goji berries adds some sweetness.

Gluten, grain and dairy free. Low carb, paleo and vegan friendly.
