Making my own granola was something that I discovered during quarentine. I never really looked into how it was made or realized how easy it is to make. I love granola to either snack on, or to throw on top of yogurt bowls or smoothie bowls.

The first granola recipe I made was my Blueberry Flax Granola. It was inspired by granola that I ate at an acai place. Since then, I have been in the kitchen experimenting with new flavors!

I also love a classic birthday cake recipe. So that was my next go-to. I hit the kitchen playing around with flavors until finally I created the perfect birthday cake granola recipe.
