Banting Granola

Great! You can have double-cream yoghurt, but do you still feel like there is something missing?  How about a scoop of home-made Granola without the added sugar, stabilisers and other funnies that creep into mass-produced bags of granola.

Keep in mind, you are not allowed grains and sugars!

Here’s my Home-made Granola recipe
