Cherry Chia Granola

Posted on July 27, 2014 by Anne Milneck | 0 comments

Oats, nuts, seeds, sweetener and dried fruit...those are the basic components of granola. We love this version. This combo includes nutty almond butter and dried cherries which makes it a little reminiscent of a PB&J. We added Murray River Flake Salt because we love the little crunches of saltiness. Vietnamese Cinnamon adds a lovely spicy note. This is a great breakfast staple and packs well for delicious on-the-go snacking!

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Combine the almond butter, honey and light brown sugar In a small saucepan. Set over low heat and stir until the brown sugar dissolves--5-10 minutes. In a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Pour the almond butter mixture over the dry mixture in the bowl. Stir to combine, completely coating all the contents of the bowl. Spread on a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil or parchment  and bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through. The granola should be lightly golden.
