Composed of cereal flakes (oatmeal), dried fruits (almonds, hazelnuts, pecans), seeds (sunflower, flax, chia,..), sugar and fat.

Making your own healthy granola recipe will allow you to control its composition in natural ingredients. Organic cereals, whole grains, gluten free, natural sugars and especially adapted to your preferences.
- Cereal flakes: Oat flakes are a source of fiber, preferably whole grain. You can replace them with wheat, barley or buckwheat flakes.
- Nuts: Nuts are a source of Omega 3, such as almonds and pecans, hazelnuts, cashews, macadamia nuts, etc.
- Seeds: Source of unsaturated fatty acids such as sunflower seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds, etc.
- Natural sugar: Honey, maple syrup or with fruits like dates, fruit juice or agave syrup
- Oil: Virgin oil, coconut oil, grape seed oil, canola oil or hazelnut oil (replace with another natural fat such as almond butter or peanut butter)
- Salt: To bring out all the flavors.
Add as an option :
- Natural flavors: Fruit coulis, applesauce or apple juice or citrus juice with zest.
- Spices: Cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg.
- Dried fruit: Red fruit or strawberry, raspberry, coconut shavings or raisins.
