Crunchy nutty granola

Supermarket bought cereals and granolas are often packed with processed fats and sugars. This healthy granola recipe is simple to make and provides a quick and easy breakfast for those rushed mornings. The nuts and seeds contain healthy monounsaturated fat, omega-3 and omega-6 essential fatty acids. Unlike commercial granolas, keeping the temperature relatively low, helps preserve the essential fats.
