Bright and Shine!

Nothing better than to start the day with homemade puffed amaranth granola. Puffed amaranth is kind of a special ingredients which gives this granola some extra crunch. If you can’t find puffed amaranth, puffed quinoa or puffed rice also works.

I usually prepare my granola already on the weekend. This way I always have it handy in the morning. I love to combine it with almond milk or coconut yogurt and fresh fruits or as a topping to my smoothie bowls.

The recipe is so quick and easy, making it ahead really removes the stress of breakfast in the morning when things are busy.

Make sure to tag me @nathaliescuisine when you are making the granola. I love to see your creations!
