cinnamon granola

packed with

the warmth of this cinnamon granola puts me in a good mood at the top of the day. this sweet spice helps to balance blood sugar levels and the combination of oats and the healthy fats found in the nuts and seeds promote feelings of fullness all the way to lunch! serve this with live natural yoghurt or your milk of choice and a sprinkle of fresh berries.
