Apple Cranberry Granola


If you’ve never heard of Kumut… it’s an ancient grain with origins in Egypt, it’s a relative of wheat.

It has 20 to 40 percent more protein and is higher in good fats, amino acids, vitamins, and minerals.  Apple Cranberry Granola is sweetened with white grape juice and it’s super deliciosos!!
