Carrot Cake Granola

Carrot Cake Granola Recipe


One of my go-to snacks is yogurt with granola and fresh fruit. It's the perfect size for a mid-day snack and it isn't too unhealthy. I have shared two other granola recipes {you can see the original homemade granola HERE and the peanut butter granola HERE} and they have been such a hit, I thought I would experiment with different flavors. I had wanted to come up with a granola that would work well with vanilla yogurt and a yogurt that would not require incorporating fruit on top. After some brainstorming, I came up with this carrot cake granola that is not only delicious, but much healthier than the actual cake itself. And, as far as taste goes, it's pretty close match to real carrot cake, too! Check out this easy, homemade granola recipe below.
