Vanilla Almond Granola

When Katherine told Devin that she was going to make granola for TMG she immediately asked for a Vanilla Almond Granola. Sweet and salty, Vanilla Almond Granola is a classic combination and the ultimate smoothie bowl topper.

Granola is the perfect snack because it’s quick and easy to make, and packs a flavour punch. The vanilla cuts through all the grain and with just the right amount of nutty flavour, it’s the perfect balance. Toss everything together in a large bowl and bake. Ensure your granola is evenly spread across the baking sheet for even browning.

Granola is the best snack because it is super versatile and a great healthy option. Granola on its own, on top of a smoothie bowl, in place of cereal, or even in place of a crumble is the best ever.
