Skinny Ms. Granola

The ultimate grab-and-go snack!

Skinny Ms. Granola is made with whole foods, wildflower honey and goes on, or with, just about anything you can think of. We like granola in our morning oatmeal or quinoa, as a breakfast cereal, in our favorite Sweet and Savory Parfait, or add to a ziplock bag for a mid-morning snack.

  1. This is probably the most delicious granola I have ever eaten!! I used coconut oil and I mixed two different types of honey together to get to the 1/2c called for (wildflower and clover). I looked for some unsweetened dried fruit but couldnt find any I was excited about so I got the trader joes golden berry blend which is a mix of cherries, blueberries, cranberries and golden raisins. I have no idea why all dried fruit isnt just left unsweetened. So ridiculous.

  2. Make this once every 2 weeks, this is the best granola I have ever tasted! Don't miss out, so easy and beyond good.
