Homemade Granola with Lavender Honey and Fresh Berries
My newest go to breakfast these days is homemade granola with fresh berries and greek yogurt. Its full of protein, fiber, and good for you natural vitamins. Its a great way to stay full all morning, and gives you lots of necessary and welcome energy. Theres never a morning when I don't welcome this dish on my table. 

 Granola Ingredients: 
4 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups coconut
1 cup cashews, chopped
2 cups sliced almonts
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup lavender honey (found here

Directions: Mix your oats, coconut, cashews, almonds, honey, and oil in a large bowl. Pour onto a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, then stir. Bake for another 20 minutes or until golden brown. Once your granola is cooked, you can seal and store it in a Tupperware container. When ready to eat it in the morning, sprinkle with fresh cut strawberries, blueberries, and greek yogurt. 

We love the crunch from the granola, the sweetness from the lavender honey, and pops of delicious juice from the berries. Get in all great nutrients like these early in the day and you will be feeling good all morning. Plus it tastes great too. Bon Appetite!
