As we nudge closer towards fall, I’m craving those warm spices and comforting (yet healthy) foods. Now that I can turn on my oven again after this crispy Seattle summer, I made a Plum Berry Cobbler Granola treat for you. The Recipe Redux has us food bloggers whipping up crunchy snacks for back-to-school, back-to-work, back-to-structure and this simple recipe packs an awesome crunch plus lots of nutrition.
Plum Berry Cobbler Granola is totally hands-off and easy to make. You blend the ingredients in a bowl then stick it on a cookie sheet and bake. It makes a large batch so be sure to freeze some for later as you enjoy it for breakfast on the go, an after school snack or pre/post-workout. It has a nice pack of complex carbohydrates with the oats and fruit plus fat from the oil and coconut to keep you full longer. Store-bought granola is typically packed with sugar and oil (hint: you need these ingredients for any granola!) but if you make your own at home, you can make it more lightly sweet and lower in fat if you desire.
Dried plums combined with blueberries in this Plum Berry Cobbler Granola make a delightful combo. I hope you enjoy these end-of-summer flavors together.
