Granola 2 Ways—Sweet and Savory

December 4, 2019

Megan Mitchell couldn’t decide between sweet or savory granola, so she made both! On this episode of Prep School, she’s baking up one of our favorite snacks (that happens to be vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free). The savory granola combines toasty nuts and seeds with woody rosemary and cayenne for kick. Sprinkle it on soup or salad for a surprising twist. The sweet version amps things up with cacao powder, making for a chocolatey crunch atop yogurt or ice cream.
