Vegan & Gluten-Free Matcha Superfood Granola

May 21, 2018
A good friend's birthday is coming up and I'd been mulling over what treat I would make her. While driving home the other day I had a (very minor) epiphany: Matcha Superfood Granola. This recipe is gluten free, vegan, and full of healthy ingredients: -Matcha: High in antioxidants and vitamins (such as vitamin C and zinc). -Oats: High in fiber, vitamins and minerals. -Black Sesame Seeds: High in vitamins and minerals (such as Iron and Magnesium) -Hazelnuts + Almonds: High in Vitamin E, protein, and folate. This granola can be served with milk for breakfast, on top plant-based yogurt, by itself as a snack, or even stored in a mason jar and given as a present!
