Energy Blast Breakfast and Snack Granola

In Dairy-free by Lisa Soldo-Johnson0 Comments

One of my biggest struggles with healthy meal ideas is at breakfast. I mean, how many different ways can you make eggs before it’s old news? Today, I finally perfected what I consider the home run of healthy granola recipes. I combined all of my favorite ingredients into one stellar batch of goodness and now breakfast may just be my new favorite meal of the day. This granola also makes a great mid-day energy boost when you need a healthy snack.

I call this, ” Energy Blast Granola” because the combination of nuts, seeds, dried fruit, cinnamon, and other ingredients pack a powerful punch of the good stuff including vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats which your body needs for energy and nutrition. Studies show that eating one handful or 1-ounce of nuts and seeds each day boost energy, strengthen your immune system, and help to keep you full until your next meal. Since there are a total of 7 different nut and seeds plus 2 dried fruit in this recipe, you get the nutritional benefits that each of them has to offer. You can also customize the recipe to fit your taste by using your favorite combination of fruits, nuts, and seeds to make it yours. All of that sounds really great, right? But my favorite part of this health-packed granola mix is the flavor fusion you get with your first bite. Super delicious if I do say so myself. Wishing you great health this year and beyond!
