Colorful Granola

Believe it or not, sometimes my sweet tooth transforms into a healthy tooth. I’m constantly craving for sweets but when I have guilty feelings, I start to crave healthy snacks. This should be a good thing for me, but usually guiltiness is not strong enough to induce me to make the healthy decision all the time.

Today I chose the nutritious option for breakfast with a content full of fiber, antioxidants, flavor and color :).

I was about to go for bananas to join the granola but today I really needed something more colorful to compensate the rainy weather during the last days here in Luxembourg.

You can try this granola with milk or yogurt and it is delicious! For vegan version, use almond or oat milk.
