Low Salicylate Choccy Crunch Granola

by | Mar 18, 2022 |

I just love me a little crunch. Sprinkled on top of porridge, mixed in with a dollop of yogurt, or simply drenched in milk, this homemade granola takes breakfast and/or snack time to a whole new level. Super easy to make (it’s a one-bowl type situation), the final product is a sweet, chocolatey, fibre-rich, low salicylate, crunch fest, guaranteed to put a smile on your face any time of the day.
