Healthy almond honey chia granola is perfect for breakfast or snack.
Summer is coming to an end. We still have nice warm weather but evenings and nights are colder now. I don’t complain I like this weather. When it’s a little cooler outside. I can spend more time outside walking and exploring the Canadian nature.
I’m also happy for upcoming Fall. Pumpkin baking, Halloween recipes etc. Now it will be time when we will turn on our ovens and prepare for upcoming Holidays. I’m in the mood for that right now:)
Let’s talk about my honey almond chia granola. I bet you heard many healthy benefits of chia seeds. Just to summarize chia is packed with fibre and omega-3 fatty acids. It helps to maintain healthy bones and teeth, stabilizes blood sugar and is a great source of protein. There are tons of recipes on the web right now. I really like Strawberry Chia Smoothie. Also I sprinkle my yogurt with chia seeds often.
The chia granola was so easy to make and I only used 6 Ingredients. My boys loved it. They add it to yogurt or milk. I love any granola, so I make it often at my home. Sometimes I use maple syrup or honey to sweeten the granola. I don’t use any other sugars.

Thanks for the recipe! I bought some chia seeds and have been looking for recipes in which to use them. I’ve made some strawberry scones with chia seeds that were yummy, but really should be an occasional food! I love granola also and use it with fruit, cottage cheese and honey. I will definitely be making some of this soon! Thanks!
Thank you so much for your visit to my blog:)

I’ve never heard about granola but it looks very delicious. It would be great breakfast for my children before they go to the school. I can make it one or two day before so there’s no hurry just having breakfast in peace. Thanks for sharing.

This granola looks delicious. I would swap out the honey for maple syrup to make it vegan though. Chia seeds are so good for you and this is a great way to sneak them into you breakfast!
I actually use maple syrup all the time in granola and this time I just change it. Thanks Mel!
