You might say I have a pretty boring breakfast most mornings, at least in the winter months. I eat pretty much the same thing on weekdays when the mornings are chilly: a bowl of oats mixed with mashed banana and a dollop of nut butter. Insta-worthy? Not so much. It’s probably the ugliest breakfast ever. But I crave it because it’s cozy, naturally sweet, and it fuels me for a morning workout.

But the days are getting warmer, and just as I am ready to trade in my boots for sandals, I’m ready for a breakfast change.

It turns out I’m not the only one! My son mentioned a craving for granola, and asked me to make some. “I like your homemade granola, mom.” So I thought about making some of our old favorites, trying to decide between Blueberry Maple Granola and Mocha Coconut Granola.

But I just can’t give up my almond butter. Call me obsessed!

So, I whipped up a batch of homemade almond butter granola, one full of nuts (more almonds! and coconut!) and seeds (hemp seeds) and naturally sweetened with almond butter and maple syrup. It’s like a summertime version of my favorite winter oats, and delicious drowned in almond milk and tons of fresh berries. My kids love it with yogurt and fruit after school, and I find the jar out on the counter all day, between breakfasts, snacks, and even for dessert!
