Homemade granola: is there anything better?
As we’re trying to eat less bacon and French toast and do something good for our health, granola has come in as the star of our morning bowls. Be it with milk or with yogurt, the sweet, crunchy, and somewhat healthy snack is a kind dining table companion. Yet whilst a lot of commercial granola brands come packed with sugars and preservatives, we recently turned to homemade granola for a more nutritious fix.
And by ‘homemade’ we mean lovingly and freshly prepared by someone else, of course.
Here’s where you can find some of the best homemade granola for delivery in Bangkok. Pro tip? If not milk or yogurt, try having it with ice cream as a divine late night snack, too.
