Vanilla Almond Protein Granola

This high-protein granola will envelope your kitchen with the smell of a freshly baked almond tart. One beauty of this recipe is you can add any nuts, seeds, or dried fruit you have on hand to the mix, or simply follow the recipe below.

Note: When baking nuts, it's important to keep the oven temperature below 250°F to avoid damaging the healthy polyunsaturated fats and the oxidation of potentially harmful toxins.
