From breakfast to snack to dessert granola can do it all. It is the perfect companion to almond milk, yogurt or a smoothie bowl in the morning. Goes great in a parfait for snack time or used to top a fruit crumble for dessert. It’s one of my go to bulk recipes and its soon to be yours…granola rocks!

This harvest spice granola came about one night when I was missing the flavours and spices of harvest season. I know we’ve just welcomed summer, but this harvest spice granola is amazing. It also goes great with a Greek yogurt and strawberry parfait.
