Blueberry Pancake Granola (V) (GF)

I would like to know why we never have enough time to do the things we enjoy.. I mean, that sounds like a backwards life if you ask me. I try so hard not to live to work but rather work to live yet the time always seems to escape me. Am I overfilling my plate by trying to do too much?? Probably.. But that is how I work to live, that’s the only way I am able to do everything I love. That being said, I am very behind with my posts. I have recipes waiting to be shared and hopefully enjoyed!

As a busy girl on the run granola never fails me! It’s quick and easy to make and very portable. I called this creation “Blueberry Pancake Granola” because that’s literally what it tastes like. As a Canadian I am very fortunate to have pure maple syrup at my finger tips. Tis the season for maple syrup festivals so keep your eye out for them. What a great way to get outside, learn about Canada’s traditions, and admire the beauty and hard work our trees have to offer. I know I’ll be going!
