Chef Gerard’s Guilt-Free Granola

Wake up on the right side of the bed each morning with a nutritious granola, and your taste buds and body will thank you!

Although the average box of granola may seem like a healthy choice when compared to the Lucky Charms on a nearby shelf, store-bought granola is often filled with as much sugar as some desserts. That’s why we asked Gerard Campbell, Chef Manager at The Homestead, to share his recipe for wholesome and delicious granola our residents love!

Chef Gerard’s granola is full of all the good-for-you ingredients Shape Magazine advises consumers to look for: Whole-grain oats deliver loads of satiating fiber; nuts and seeds offer heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and dried fruit or coconut offer natural sweetness. With just a little bit of honey for added sweetness, this recipe also avoids the excessive sugar that nutritionists warn against.

Whether you serve it just with milk or yogurt, or prefer to jazz it up with fresh fruit or cinnamon, we know Chef Gerard’s yummy granola recipe will leave you with a smile on your face each morning!
