DIY // Coconut Oil Granola

Recipe + Photo via Take A Megabite

 

Have you ever made granola? It's super easy AND extra tasty. My personal favorite is made with coconut oil. It's the perfect crispiness, if you ask me! I like to eat it with milk, yogurt, or by the handful. There's no wrong way, really.

 

Serve it up in some of our super cool Susty Party bowls! Package it up and bring it to work in our Bagasse Bowl Container and matching Lid and have a simple breakfast on the go. It's even more fun to eat with one of our brightly colored spoons.
