Granola: Our Super Easy Recipe for a Kid Friendly Snack
Granola is the perfect snack for before practice or a game.
It has a good amount of complex carbohydrates (from the oats), healthy fats (shredded unsweetened coconut and coconut oil), and natural sweetness from maple syrup, brown sugar, and dried fruit. While I make it nut free, you could certainly add chopped pecans or almonds to the mix for extra protein, fat, and fiber.
This granola is not only super easy to make, but it keeps well for about a week and travels well – just throw in a ziploc bag for a quick snack on the way to practice, or top greek yogurt.
While this recipe takes a little longer than most of my recipes (due to the cooling time) I guarantee it’s worth it!
