Granola is always a huge hit at my house. Most of the times, instead of making granola bars, I make regular granola which can be used in different way. We love stirring it into yogurt, snacking on it and also sprinkling it on top of our smoothies. And whenever we travel – granola bars is our favourite snack. I always make a large batch of granola bars and carry them during our travels.
Since my family loves it so much, I was on the lookout for a version which has a lower amount of completely skips the sweeteners. And that’s when my sister shared this recipe with me. She always makes a batch of this for her in-laws as they are diabetic. They love having granola for their morning breakfast but did not prefer the store bought options as almost everything had sugar in one form or the other.
So if you are looking for a healthy breakfast or snack option, do give this recipe a try!
