5-Minute Healthy Granola Recipe

5-Minute Healthy Granola Recipe

Granola for me is one of those comfort foods that’s like a good, old friend.  You know the kind that you can go months (or even years) without talking to, and then pick up right where you left off?!  I can go months without making granola and then when I make a batch, I always feel like I should do it more often.

The magic happens as they sit overnight and create a perfect medley of scrumptiousness to keep you satiated all morning.

BC wild salmon are well known across Canada and enjoyed thoroughly by all members in my household. In fact, the other day when we were enjoying this exact recipe at the supper table, my oldest pipped up and stated that "salmon tastes better than ice cream!" (No joke. I almost fell off my chair but the kid had seriously eaten more salmon then me)!
