The art and satisfaction of the crunch… lets be real it is always the best part of a meal, other it be the skin, the edge of a lasagna, that feeling of a sweet potato chip… you can’t lose! So during a weekend of nothing but snow I decided to explore another granola option… this was in between a few snow ball fights, snow men and snow angels of course… 😉

This crunchy number is bringing together a few of our favourite ingredients as one textural finish. After playing around with Tahini I found it goes ridiculously well with honey and quinoa, as it offers that nutty undertone as the sweetness and texture come through at the end.


Being a granola you can store it one of those mason jars we all love, and have it for whatever breakfast or afternoon crunch your body is craving… I love it on top of my Banana Coconut Smoothie Bowl … but I am sure you can find some pretty amazing uses for it! 🙂
