I tend to eat quite healthy most of the time, and I keep a strict meal and exercise plan in order to remain strong and healthy. You may not be able to find any junk food or candy in my pantry, and I prefer making healthy treats instead of buying them.
This spelt granola is made entirely out of spelt flakes (as opposed to using whole oats in regular granola), and is crunch and absolutely delicious with fresh yogurt and fruits. I like to add it all kinds of nuts and seeds, and I use some maple to sweeten it a little. It’s so easy to make you’ll never have to buy granola again!
