recipe time! cherry & almond granola

Oh granola, the perfect snack. The PERFECT snack to keep on your counter so that you don't catch yourself grabbing for candy bars and bags of Doritos. Keeping your healthier snacks super accessible is really important. Even though this granola has butter and oil and sugar, it is homemade and is packed full of other great nutrients. Experiment with the recipe and see if you can decrease the sugar or the butter if you like! The flaxseed meal is really a good investment if you get a bag of it at the store. You can use it for so many things- baked goods, pancakes, waffles, smoothies, salad dressings.. the options are limitless! Tell me, what's your favorite healthy snack to keep on hand? How do you like your granola?
