GO TO GRANOLA
WITH WALNUT AND CRANBERRY
Benefits: Oats offer a slow release of energy, rich in minerals, B vitamins and soluble fiber (beta glucans), which is beneficial for gut health. Cinnamon may have a positive effect on blood sugar, helping to support insulin sensitivity, and is beneficial for people with metabolic issues, such as diabetes, or PCOS. Walnuts provide us with a balanced source of omega-3s and omega-6s essential fats, vitamin E, folate, vitamin B6 and magnesium.
