It takes only minutes to prepare, but will come to the rescue for so many healthy (yet fun) snacks or meals.
When I was a teenager, the only thing teens baked were cakes and cookies. Today’s teens seem to be getting comfortable in the kitchen by preparing trendier foods. Think: Açaí bowls, energy balls, salads, and lots and lots of ice coffee (and some peanut butter cups). Aside from having more sophisticated taste than I did during my high school years, it seems they are choosing healthier foods too!
And this recipe is included! This is an addictive granola recipe that’s nut-free and the perfect child-friendly granola. Serve over yogurt, smoothies, or ice cream. Top your acai bowls with almond butter over fruit. Or enjoy it plain as a snack.
And no, they don’t need to get any bowls dirty.
It all comes together right on the baking sheet.
And gets so delicious and crispy.
Enjoy it with fruit, over yogurt, at home for breakfast, or take it to go!
Keep it in the freezer because granola always comes in handy.
