Ditch sugary granola for home made muesli!
I was surprised to find out that my favorite “healthy” granola has a lot of sugar in it even though it’s named, innocently on the label as “Evaporated cane juice“. Evaporated cane juice is supposed to be a healthy alternative to refined sugar, but I prefer not to have added sugar to my breakfast. So I decided to make my own version I mixed a few cups rolled oats with raisins, dried apricot and dried mango + sunflower and pumpkin seeds.The dried fruit make it taste nice and sweet and when I eat this muesli with hemp milk or yogurt I feel like a winner!
The great thing about making your own muesli is that you get to pick all your favorite flavors. I’m already thinking what I’m going to be making next…! Coconut..dried banana.. Hmmm..
When you make your own muesli make sure you buy “unsulfured” dried fruit (no sugar added). Sulfur dioxide is a preservative to help retain the original fruit color, but it’s not healthy.
Take control over your sugar intake! One spoon less at a time 😉
