This granola is soooo good. And some sneaky veggies for breakfast is always a win!
Are squash veggies or fruit through? hmmm… hahah, its nutrient dense, fun to grow and tastes delicious so we are happy either way.
Making this for the first time was a bit of a mad scientist experiment, but I was determined to find a way to make it work. I could taste the flavour and needed to make it a thing. Inspired by my never ending obsession with pumpkin and cinnamon. And my need to use up the last of our squash stock from autumn season on the allotment.
You can serve this granola with some fresh plant milk, or try using it to make a sundae with these yummy nice creams:
