Recipe: Deliciously Healthy Granola

My boyfriend can’t  stop making homemade coconut yogurt, so I decided to make some homemade granola to go with it! The great thing about granola is you can put whatever you’d like in it. If you don’t like one of the nuts or berries I added, choose your own! Buy organic and buy in bulk!
