Nutmeg & Coconut Granola

Nutmeg & Coconut Granola

My latest granola creation. I think the combination of nutmeg, maple and coconut is a real winner. The way it tastes to the way it fills the kitchen with the it’s heart warming smells, makes it a perfect soul comforter.

If you haven’t yet given homemade granola a bash, TRY IT. It’s so simple and a million times better than shop bought cereals, with the sugar and all sorts of other nasties that your body could do with out as the first thing it’s feeding on in the day! This has no refined sugar and the oats and coconut provide a gentle release of energy for hours, so it’s pretty much the perfect way to ease yourself into the day.
