Cinnamon Maple Granola

What is a yogurt parfait or chia seed pudding without a crunchy granola topper? After all, it’s all about texture! But store-bought varieties often contain honey, dried fruits, and certain nuts that may trigger unwanted symptoms of IBS. Instead, create a gut-friendly granola option that you can feel good about eating. Enjoy it for breakfast or as an on-the-go snack to help energize even the busiest of days. Granola is simple to make in large batches for a must-have pantry staple to incorporate into other culinary creations. It can get transformed into fruit crisps, energy bars, baked goods, and more! So, whether you are feeling extra sweet or setting sights on something savory, there is an oat to float your boat that won’t make you bloat! Looking for more oat-based recipes?
