Maple Walnut Granola

Maple Walnut Granola, another granola with no refined sugar, and only 30 minutes in the oven! Why buy granola, when homemade is this easy? 

Who likes having breakfast easy enough so that everyone can serve themselves? I see, so it isn't just me! I love mornings, but I don't always want to cook a big breakfast. Granola is perfect for the serve yourself breakfast club. Maple Walnut Granola like our other favorite Honey Almond Granola offers variety while serving up good nutrition. 

Each flavor of our homemade granola calls for pumpkin seeds as part of the ingredients list. Pumpkin seeds are a good source of magnesium along with crunch and a delicious nutty flavor. That was new information to me when I began learning the nutrition of the different ingredients included in our granola recipes. And it turns out magnesium is one of those minerals we need each day.  

The walnuts in Maple Walnut Granola offer selenium along with healthy Omega-3 fat. Fortunately, homemade granola, when made with healthy ingredients provides a powerhouse of nutrition to start your day! Plus, it tastes really good! Please note, while I am not a nutritionist, I have researched which foods provide needed nutrients for good health.
