VANILLA BEAN APRICOT GRANOLA

This recipe is super simple and great to make ahead for the whole week stored in an airtight container. It gives you a great source of fibre and protein to keep you full and satisfied and it’s oh so delicious! I love adding this to yogurt or make a smoothie bowl with it.
