  • Serving: Serve with your favorite plant-based milk or yogurt and drizzle with honey.

  • 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.!
