GraNutOla: Nutty Granola

I can still remember discovering Angela Liddon’s blog Oh She Glows for the first time and being absolutely in awe at her delicious, innovative, and colorful plant-based creations. When she published The Oh She Glows Cookbook in March 2014, I had it on pre-order before it was out! One of my favorite recipes is her “Ultimate Nutty Granola Clusters.” I have adapted the recipe to include even more nuts and enjoy it best with a scoop of Nuttzo over my Buddhaful Smoothie!

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1/2 cup walnut halves or pieces
  • 1/2 cup pecan pieces
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
