The spring weather is just around the corner, so I’m already craving all the fruit forward concepts! No matter what the season, I personally love all things lemon. I find that lemon is a palate cleaners, it’s light, refreshing and not overwhelming to the tastebuds. In addition, lemon just pairs with everything. The sweet, the savory, all of it!! It even reduces plant based iron to a more absorbable form so you can extract it more efficiently.
Something I never got into until recently, was granola. I never enjoyed it for breakfast as I’m an avocado toast person, and if I ever craved it, I would just buy it. However, I had no idea just how easy it is to whip up a homemade batch! Not only does it taste better like everything homemade, but you control the amount of sugar, which can be excessive in store bought options, and you can pack on the superfoods.
What I love most about homemade granola, is that the options are endless with flavors and add ons and you can salvage fruit that’s on it’s way out so you’re not wasting. You never get bored with flavors and you’re saving money, you can’t go wrong!
What wonderful about this recipe, is everything! It’s easy, affordable, you can pair it dairy free yogurt or whatever you like, it’s packed with super foods, gluten free, colorful, has notes of lemon, you can dehydrate your own strawberries, the oats pack fiber, the quinoa packs protein, and the list goes on!
