It seems like everything in the grocery store is getting more and more expensive.
I seriously think I spend $10-15 on cereal and granola each week! Cereal is one of my go to options for a quick meal or snack when I’m in a rush. I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t have it for dinner last night…
However, when each box is $4-5, it adds up pretty quickly!
The downside is that granola is even more expensive.
Sure it’s convenient (and extremely tasty if you buy the right brand), but it’s so easy to make at home, more cost effective, and you control the ingredients.
Plus, you can customize it any way you want!
Does it get any better than that?
I love granola. It’s amazing.
It’s a great midday snack day, but it’s also a perfect addition to breakfast. It goes great with yogurt, fruit, cereal, or even a topping on pancakes or waffles.

This granola reminded me of Justin’s Honey Almond Butter. I love that stuff!
