CHAI SPICED GRANOLA
Hello fall, I see you creeping in.
Being the first week home with baby girl, I swear I blinked and we were already celebrating her 7th day earthside with us. It has been the most incredible, most magical, most exhausting, and HUNGRIEST time of my life.
I will thank those hunger cues for this granola inspiration. Im craving comfort and cozy, both of which sum up this recipe. It's simple , it's delicious, and it will get your kitchen smelling like fall heaven.
Mmmm I can't wait to have a bowl with some almond milk and berries tomorrow!
