Element Granola

This recipe from ELEMENT snacks, using their non-GMO, gluten-free, chocolate-dipped rice cakes, makes this tasty treat guilt-free, too.

Granola Shopping Tip

What’s the difference between brown and white eggs? Besides color, nothing – different breeds of chicken account for the differences in color – quality and freshness are what really count.

Granola Cooking Tip

In addition to keeping foods like granola, yogurt, and fruit on hand, plan ahead for hectic weekdays by whipping up extra batches of waffles or pancakes and individually freezing them for easy morning meals.
