A Breakfast Change 

I started making my own granola about three years ago…(it was not low carb granola).

I wanted to have a healthy breakfast for my husband since what he was eating back then just wasn’t keeping him full.

Let me tell on him!  He used to eat a banana with peanut butter for breakfast! THAT’S IT!!!

I know I couldn’t eat that and stay full for a few hours either.

Green Smoothie Girl Granola

The recipe I found a few years ago is the same one I still make for my husband today!

It came from Robyn Openshaw (aka Green Smoothie Girl).

I met her in person and found out that she had a clean and healthy granola recipe, so I thought I’d try it.

It is delicious and a winner for my husband;  therefore he eats it every single day for breakfast.  Here’s her granola recipe.

Because Green Smoothie Girl’s granola uses good fats AND good carbs, it would be a crossover.

Also, the sweeteners she uses are pure maple syrup and honey.

It calls for 1/2 cup of each for a batch that ends up being 11-12 cups of granola.

You can have a small portion in a crossover setting once in a while.

So I used some of the same ingredients, added a few things, took away some things and here I have a granola that is super satisfying!!!

Yes, it can be used in an S meal or snack.

I eat it plain with a sprinkle of Lily’s chocolate chips.

I love it as cereal with unsweetened almond milk and strawberries as well.

You can use this granola in a variety of ways…use your imagination!

My husband has also been eating this recently (meaning that I need to make more of his granola so he doesn’t eat all of mine) 🙂
