Granola is one that has always divided my opinions, & that is because it inherently requires additional sugar/sweeteners (unless of course you make my snazzy, sneaky sugar free version).
But there are levels & options to play with when it comes to adding sweet things into our diets & it would seem useless of me to simply suggest we must all eschew the concept of a sweet treat from our lives forever more.
So instead I’ve carefully considered the quantities & other ingredients within this recipe to balance the addition of a syrup to create that characteristic crunch.
And to say this is crunchy is to underestimate the level of clusteration (which is now a word) that this combination does in fact create.
