Nutty Granola (Sugar Free)

This nutty granola mix is a great option for anyone interested in minimizing sugar in their diet. Not only is it sugar free, it is also delicious! I love how the slight sweetness from the dried coconut combines perfectly with the plentiful nuts in this granola recipe. I highly recommend this granola with Greek yogurt. It also pairs well with cow’s or almond milk. Create a well-rounded start to your morning meal by adding berries or bananas.
