Vanilla Granola

Vanilla Granola

I am a breakfast lover. I never skip breakfast in the morning. On the weekdays before work my breakfast of choice is always cereal and milk or oatmeal. I have a terrible sweet tooth and love nothing better than a big bowl of Lucky Charms. I was a pretty lucky kid. My parents always kept a steady supply of pop tarts and sugary cereal. I turned out fine! I wasn’t a fussy eater and I always ate my vegetables.

Vanilla Granola

This granola is my perfect breakfast choice. It’s crunchy, slightly sweet and can be mixed and match with toppings. I personally prefer it with milk and sliced bananas. I don’t hide it that I eat breakfast for dinner. I found this filling and satisfying enough that I had bowls of it for dinner several nights last week.
