Clean Lean Protein   recipe

Recipe by Charissa & Co.

OPTION 1 - Dehydrator

OPTION 2 - Oven

I have used my dehydrator for this as I wanted to dry it on a slow heat for a longer period, however you can use your oven.

Why make your own? Well, firstly you know what goes into your morning granola...Secondly, you can make it your own according to what you like. Thirdly, it is more cost effective and it is also a lot cleaner and less processed than commercial factory-made granolas.

Some granolas are inflammatory causing. Not only do some granola’s look “healthy’ on the packaging they are actually the opposite. Once you actually look at the label you will be surprised as to what goes into this so called marketed “healthy granola”.
