Fig and Walnut Granola

This is one of my favourite ways to begin the day!

You may not know this about me but I’m a huge granola fan. I ALWAYS have a container of homemade granola stored in the pantry. I usually sprinkle some on top of my yogurt and fresh fruit for breakfast or on top of my oats.

I am OBSESSED with this fig and walnut recipe, it has warming spices and toasty walnuts that just make it extra special.

Not to mention the sweet chewy dried figs are just so yummy and provide a great texture to compliment the walnuts and buckwheat!

(omit walnuts & almonds for oats for nut free version :D)
