Growing up I was a huge cereal person. I had cereal drenched in skim milk for breakfast and dessert almost everyday. Back then I had no idea that I was basically eating a bowl of sugar with a cup of liquid sugar pour over it – no bueno! After I finally learned what I was actually eating, I cut cereal for good (and skim milk), but I ended up really missing that crunch factor. I then transitioned to adding granola on top of oatmeal or yogurt to replace the sugary cereal. Little did I know that I was still consuming a ton of sugar from that store-bought granola.
But who doesn’t love that mix of sweet, salt, and crunchy? So I decided to make my own. I hope you enjoy this delicious, low-carb crunchy granola recipe that is a perfect on-the-go snack or topping for your favorite smoothie. The Vanilla Collagen Powder adds a perfect hint of sweetness to satisfy any sweet tooth.
