A Quick Morning Breakfast
My quick morning breakfast is always a bowl of granola with double thick yogurt drizzled with honey. Last night I realized I ran out of granola and my oats so I decided to make my own cinnamons and honey granola which is paleo-friendly, grain-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, freezer-friendly, free of refined sugars and vegetarian.
