For those of us who are fans of granola, this version of Granola muffins that I bring here will definitely please you, because it provides a different way of enjoying it. Furthermore, you’ll now also have a much healthier food alternative to accompany your tea or coffee.
You can also have it as a snack, which you may carry it around easily if desired, therefore there’s no excuse to eat healthy and different anywhere.
I recommend you to wait a little bit for them to cool down before removing them from the mold, because they’ll be much firmer when they are cold. If you don’t have all the ingredients, give it a shot at making them your own way, with ingredients you may have available at home.
