Low Carb Granola
Granola is shown served with a vanilla “Two Good” greek yogurt and 2-3 oz of raspberries.
Do you get sick of eating eggs for breakfast every day? I personally do not. But I know there are people that do! With all the great low-carb greek yogurts available and this low-carb granola, you can change things up from the typical egg breakfast while still maintaining your nutritional value at breakfast. It is also a great snack option, especially when craving something sweet.
