  • Serving: Serve with your favorite plant-based milk or yogurt and drizzle with honey.
  • Storage: Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 1-2 weeks. If you aren’t going to use all of it within 2 weeks I would recommend freezing it!  Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.  To thaw leave on your countertop overnight.
  • Sugar Content: if you want to make it less sweet, simply reduce the honey by half.
  • Add-In Ideas: After you have baked your granola and let it cool you can break it into chunks and add: dried fruit, nuts, coconut flakes, dairy-free chocolate chips, etc.!
  • Gluten-Free: to make gluten-free just ensure you are using gluten-free certified oats!
