Homemade granola packed with blueberries for breakfast, snack or anytime. A great way to use your fresh or frozen blueberries. Maple syrup, oats, nuts and seeds baked to a delicious crunch!
Blueberry granola is such a healthier option when compared to high sugar, processed cereals. This granola is "infused" with blueberries by chopping them and combining with the coconut. If you don't have some of the ingredients listed in the recipe, feel free to use whatever nuts/seeds or other substitutes you have on hand. Granola is fun to make because you can individualize the recipe to whatever you like!
