Maple cinnamon granola


Maple cinnamon granola

So here it is. My first post, the one I have been dreaming for months . It took a while to launch Diala s kitchen. In between working as  flight attendant  and being the mother of 2 amazing girls, life is busy.But eating well is something that matters and I will take time to bake a batch of Maple cinnamon granola on weekends.
Ive been making this granola for years and its a staple at home .The way it goes with greek yogurt and berries makes me want to get up in the morning . You can add a bit to smoothies or top slices of apples and your favorite nut butter with it as well.  For this recipe,Ive used  coconut oil,instead of butter, making it lighter and crispier . You can use any other nuts you have on hand, here Ive used the ones I love the most.

Get baking !
