Sweet & Salty Granola

This is THE BEST granola ever. Honestly. It is both sweet AND salty! What a good idea. Homemade granola is easy to make, free of fillers, and can be made with certified gluten-free oats. Best of all, you can control how much sweet stuff goes into it, which is essential in my house where my sweet tooth easily gets the best of me.

Eat this on its own, on top of chia pudding, with yogurt, almond milk, etc. The options really are endless. Just make it :).
