NUTTY FIG & CHOCOLATE GRANOLA

 Want something lighter for breakfast or a lighter snack to help you get through the day? Well then you just have to try this one! When I was a kid I LOVED sugary cereals, especially one brand that was called ”Start” but I was only aloud to eat it when I had friends over on weekends cause my parents thought it was too much sugar in it. I remembered that I was sooooo angry at them for that lol. But now I know that they were only trying to protect me from diabetes and health issues lol.  Too bad I didn’t know back then that you could make your own healthy version of granola, like this one!

Today I ate it with some homemade almond vanilla milk  and some frozen blueberries! Just a perfect little snack before my evening run.
