I love cooking ahead of time to make dishes that not only taste delicious, but also make me feel good. This Super Healthy Granola is just the ticket!


When it comes to make ahead recipe for breakfast and snacking I reach for all the nutritionally dense ingredients in this Super Healthy Granola. I’ve been making it for years and putting it in glass jars to keep in the pantry to serve with milk, on top of yogurt in parfaits and to grab and go when we’re needing a little something special as a pick-me-up.


One of my favorite tricks for this Super Healthy Granola is to let it sit for an hour or so until it’s totally cool after baking so you can break it into big chunks that turn out almost like granola bars. Each bite has a nutty taste with just enough spice to make it addictive to adults and kids.


When you’re trying to figure out what to make to get you on the right path to health this year you’ll be glad you made a big sheet pan of Super Healthy Granola!
