Apple Cinnamon Granola and Blueberry Oat Bake

Having a healthy, nutrient-dense breakfast ready in minutes is essential for busy mornings. 

Granola is one of the easiest, most versatile ways to feel good any time of day. Add it to yogurt and smoothie bowls. Layer it parfait-style in a jar with fresh fruit and yogurt for a grab-n-go breakfast. Portion it in baggies for a healthy snack later in the day.

Loaded with fiber, nutrients and phytonutrients, this Apple Cinnamon Granola recipe promotes weight loss by stabilizing blood glucose levels. It gives you lasting energy so you’re not tempted by unhealthy snacks. Fiber and potassium help maintain blood pressure and slow the deposit of plaque in arteries that can lead to a stroke or heart attack. Nuts and nut butter are a good source of vegan protein and unrefined ingredients promote gut health. Make this part of your weekly food prep and you’ll never walk out the door without breakfast!
