Granola with Prana’s Machu Pichu Fruit & Nut Mix
Granola is a quick and easy way to start your morning and, if you choose the right ingredients, it can provide you with the nutrients and energy to help you get through your day. Our Machu Pichu granola combines Brazil nuts, almonds, European pumpkin seeds, white mulberries, goldenberries and goji berries with the power of rolled oats. This recipe is naturally sweetened with maple syrup and emits delicious aromas of coconut oil and fair trade spices.
