Homemade granola truly is one of life’s greatest simple pleasures. It’s easy to make, creates a delightful aroma that wafts through your house and it also means that you’ve got breakfast sorted for the week! This blueberry and almond granola has the perfect balance of crunch and chewiness with sweet notes from the blueberries and maple and a good hit of nuttiness from the almonds. The base comprises of rolled oats and buckwheat meaning that this granola has a great amount of fibre to keep you full until lunch. It can be served in a bowl with a good pour of almond milk, eaten sprinkled over a generous dollop of coconut yoghurt or simply straight out of a jar for a nutrient dense snack.
