Superfood Granola Recipe from Good Clean Health

Peach & Maple Superfood Granola

I threw this granola together as I got the kids ready for their swim lesson.  It filled the house with the cozy aroma of maple.  The recipe is so simple, and "super" nutritious.  The chia seeds and goji berries really add a nutritional punch!  The flavors of this granola remind me of one of my favorite indulgences, peach cobbler.  When you get a little morsel of the peach amongst the comforting taste of maple covered oats it is hard to believe you are eating something healthful.

The recipe can be easily modified to incorporate your favorite flavors or for what you have on hand.  Enjoy it with your with coconut or almond milk, as a topping on your favorite organic yogurt or take it on the go as a quick energy-boosting snack.  I like to make a batch on Sundays and we then have a healthy and substantial breakfast option and snack for the week.  I keep ours in a glass jar on the kitchen counter, which allows for easy access to snacking healthfully while I'm cooking or taking photos for my blog.   Unfortunately, the jar is hard to keep filled with the hubby and my two foodies in training around.

I am not sure why but for some reason making granola makes me feel like I am truly taking a step closer to living a simpler and cleaner life, and a step further from the modern craze. and that makes me happy. enjoy
