Granola hasn’t always had the best reputation when it comes to being healthy! But this granola is different. It is low in sugar, high in fibre, good fats and taste!

You can mix-up the nuts and seeds to increase the plant-variety each time or remove the nuts if you are adding it to lunchboxes.

These muffins are healthy but tasty! They are high in fibre, including resistant starch from green banana flour and oats and contain no added sugar (apart from that in the choc chips, which you could omit as a preference).

If you don’t have green banana flour on hand, you can boost the oats or wholemeal SR flour or swap it for almond meal or LSA.
