This granola recipe is among the 160 refined sugar-free recipes for everyday eating published in The mymuybueno Cookbook. It was the author’s first ever mymuybueno Deli recipe back in 2011, and has won every time it entered the Great Taste Awards since that first year. This granola is simply delicious with sliced banana, fresh berries, a dollop of nut butter and milk, or as a topping for your acai, chia pudding or yoghurt bowl. This recipe makes a nice big batch to last for a while. What I love about this book is that she tells little stories about the inspiration behind each recipe. Try this recipe with your family and let us know what you think.
