I’ve been looking for a low calorie, low sugar granola. Turns out those are hard to find.
You know what they say, if you want something done right you need to do it yourself.
Well, ok…maybe that’s not entirely true. I did find one brand that I loved, but it was a bit pricey for me to buy regularly. I decided to make it myself. Turns out it was ridiculously easy.
No baking. No crazy ingredients.
Just stirring all that superfood goodness.
Chia Superfood Granola
- 1/2 cup organic buckwheat grouts
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 cup hemp hearts
Nutritional Info (per 2 tbsp): Calories: 70, Fat: 3.5g, Carbs: 8g, Fibre: 2.5g, Protein: 3g
Is it ridiculous to just say that the instructions are…like…just mix.
Well, that was hard.
So to eat this divine bunch of love…you take 2 tbsp. of cereal and mix it with about 1/2 cup of almond milk and let it sit a couple minutes.
Sounds meager, but the chia seeds expand and make it into a delicious, wholesome breakfast. And you can always have second helpings!
Chia seed fan, yay or nay?

Several months ago I started reading a book called “Trim Healthy Mama”. I was very impressed with their philosophy of food, wellness, and weight loss…it was extremely balanced, yet; refreshingly different than the other health/wellness books I’ve read in the past. Their viewpoints were similar to Continue reading »
