Our Favourite Healthy Granola Recipe – Francie Healey

Happy Sunday RWYK family! Today Francine Healey, a mental health counselor and the author of Eat to Beat Alzheimer’s, returns with a delicious recipe for Granola that we can create with our kids. Francie is stopping by today with some great advice about feeding our brains, making our own homemade granola as some store-bought granola is so loaded with fat and calories. The solution? Make your own homemade granola- since you know exactly what’s going into it, you can keep it low-sugar, but still totally delicious.

In this interview, Francie  talks about taking charge of our kids health by incorporating tasty, healing foods into their diet and shares a healthy recipe of Granola that makes a nourishing and energy-sustaining snack food. This recipe is filled with nutrients which provide efficient fuel for the brain, support methylation, and hormone health. Be sure to make this recipe with your kids & have fun!
