Superfood Energizing Almond Butter Granola

I’m sure you’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, however we all know that the breakfast window is often blurry at festivals when we lose track of time. Granola is both a great snack and breakfast staple because you can easily pack it with you on the dance floor or have a calm sit-down meal at your campsite. I love to top my coconut yogurt with this granola or even just serve it in a bowl with almond milk.

This Superfood Energizing Granola is naturally sweetened with dates instead of refined sugar and also happens to be oil-free to keep things light. Too many store-bought granolas are weighted down with sugar, preservatives and hydrogenated oils which can take a toll on your digestive system. The addition of mulberries, chia seeds and maca powder are three powerhouse superfoods that help keep you fuller for longer, sugar cravings low and your energy high!

1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans and/or cashews)

½ cup pitted dates

½ cup coconut chips

½ cup dried mulberries or other berry of choice

¼ cup chia seeds

¼ cup almond butter

1 Tbsp cinnamon

2 Tbsp maca powder
