Cinnamon Almond Granola

I am a granola addict; there is no getting around it. I consume it in all ways: mixed in with yogurt, the perfect crunchy topping to chia pudding, and, of course, by the fistful. However, there is no way I enjoy more than a big old bowl of granola with some nut milk – cereal style. Whenever I receive my Sakara meals (use code XOCAMERON for 20% off your first order), I am always ecstatic to find a version of granola/nut milk breakfast combination. Recently, Joe and I decided to split one of these combinations (a coconut praline granola and a dark chocolate mylk) for dessert, and I’ve never seen the kid so pleased and in love with a healthy dish in my life. Right then, I knew I was going to have to recreate this combo ASAP. This new snack, breakfast, and dessert option is now a large part of my routine.
