Cinnamon Chia Seed Granola

This afternoon has been both productive and lazy.

Lazy in that Ryan and I spent an hour by the pool reading magazines…

And productive in that we started packing up pictures and things around our apartment for our big move.

In the middle of the laziness and productivity, we ate!

Lunch included Asian veggie burgers with carrot sticks and bread and butter pickles.

Snack time occurred shortly after when I decided to get a jump-start on my latest freelance piece and do some recipe experimenting in the kitchen.

I present to you, cinnamon chia seed granola!

    Sweet – thanks for the recipe. I was looking to buy some granola last night but was getting angry with how much added sugar is in most of them. So I usually make my own granola! Will have to try this.
    Good luck with the house-hunt. Fingers crossed.

    Yum! Definitely have to give this a go. Not sure how long it will last though…. I tend to save granola and muesli for when I eat out. Otherwise it becomes my breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner and dessert.

    :)

    Hey, I just noticed that you didn’t actually say in the recipe where to use the cinnamon and chia seeds. I’m assuming you combine them both with the oats but yeah :)
