Recipe: All Natural Homemade Granola


Everything’s better when it’s homemade! Storebought granola can have upwards of 20 ingredients on the label, many you can’t even pronounce. And it’s often loaded with added sugars, artificial colors and an insane amount of Calories. Making your own at home is an easy way to take charge of your mornings, and know exactly what’s fueling your body. Family Style’s homemade granola has no added sugars, and the addition of coconut oil means you get a healthy dose of fat (12g) per serving. Don’t be scared. While coconut oil is made up primarily of saturated fat, it is unique in that its fat is mostly medium chain triglycerides, which research has shown may help aid brain function*. What a great way to start your day!
