Give your Valentine a healthy home-made snack this year instead of a box of chocolates!
This granola is delicious all by itself or paired with your favorite milk or yogurt. Packed with heart healthy monounsaturated fats from the almonds this granola will keep you feeling fuller longer and provide a rich infusion of potassium and magnesium - both essential for good cardiovascular health. The ground ginger lends a subtle spice and comes with lots of therapeutic benefits, including improving digestion and reducing inflammation. This granola is also under 7 grams of sugar per serving - another bonus for those of you who are watching your sugar intake!
