Fit & Fab Granola…just saying the name of this recipe makes me feel healthy.

Try this flavorful granola that my daughter made when she was in college. She still likes to add cinnamon to a lot of her breakfast dishes, and it adds a nice touch to this granola.

Add some cinnamon to your breakfast because…
Cinnamon has some great qualities and is a flavorsome way to replace sugar in the diet.
It’s beneficial to those on a Yeast Free Diet, particularly for Candida overgrowth.
Did you know cinnamon might also be helpful to those with arthritic pain and in reducing inflammation?
The best thing about cinnamon though…it tastes good!

Leigha’s fit & fab granola has endless options. Try some sprinkled on yogurt, on cooked oatmeal, or in a bowl with sliced bananas with some milk or a milk substitute. It’s even good by the handful! You can use granola in recipes like fruit crisps, cookies, and one of our favorites, SunButter No-Bake Granola Clusters.
