    Most store-bought granola is full of sugar, unhealthy oils and is surprisingly expensive! Believe it or not homemade granola hardly takes any time at all, is much healthier and will save you a fortune. My Favorite Granola is a great batch cooking opportunity so if you’re new to batch cooking this is a great beginner recipe to getting your hands dirty.

    Let’s talk benefits.

    Almonds. My Favorite Granola calls for 1 cup of almond powder. Almonds are a plant-based protein, low in saturated fatty acids, rich in unsaturated fatty acids, and contain fiber and antioxidants. Did I mention they also lower cholesterol? And don’t fear the high calorie count. Almonds curb cravings and help reduce feelings of hunger. Snacking on almonds can actually play a beneficial role in weight loss my managing caloric consumption.

    Pecans. Like almonds, pecans are rich in healthy fats and antioxidants.

    Coconut Oil. The list of benefits are so numerous and so impressive I decided to publish the information in 2 blog posts to thoroughly cover the scientifically proven benefits of coconut oil and how its continued use can benefit your long term health. Read up on Coconut Oil and the reasons to fall in love.

    Oats. Oats have a super low glycemic score which means they can prevent spikes and dips in energy. They provide slow-releasing carbohydrates that keep blood sugar and energy levels stable.

    Cinnamon. But when it comes to maintaining insulin sensitivity, nothing does a better job at it than cinnamon. The polyphenols in them make cinnamon an ideal item to include in your super-food-items list.
