Low Fat Cinnamon-Raisin Granola
I love granola but it can be pretty high on the fat front, so I decided to play around with ingredients to come up with this lower fat version that does not compromise on taste & can also be made vegan or gluten free. Again another one that can be made in a large batch in advance (with 5.30am starts every day I’m a big fan of anything that saves time in the morning!). It works really well with ice cold milk/almond milk, or makes great yoghurt topping (especially if you layer in some fresh berries)
Sometimes I even just take a handful on its own as a snack to keep me going.
The recipe below is for a cinnamon raisin granola (as this is my favourite) but you can substitute for any dried fruits/nuts/seeds you like. If you don’t mind taking the fat content up a bit then dried cherries, dark chocolate & almonds work amazing in this! (Just make sure you add the chocolate at the end once the granola has cooled – unless you want a melted mess!).
