Blueberries & Cream Granola ~ #SundaySupper

Clearly I have an obsession, people. I’m not here to deny it. Frankly, I relish in this type of obsession. Crunchy oats, toasted coconut, sweet berries, and white chocolate–I don’t have the strength to resist.

As you all may know, I love granola. It’s one of my favorite recipes to experiment with. Mix a bunch of your favorite flavors–bam, you have yourself a healthy snack.

Just recently I started selling my granola. Out of no where, friends, family, and strangers started placing orders. My granola is famous. Okay, so maybe it’s not famous, but people (other than me and my family) like it. Success!

Once the orders started rolling in, I knew I had to up the ante. My next recipe had to be epic–the recipe everyone goes bonkers for. A granola recipe that beats all other granola recipes.

Enter blueberries & cream granola. It’s sweet and creamy. Crunchy and toasty. Bursting with blueberry flavor and morsels of white chocolate. You won’t be able to walk past the granola container without stealing a fistful.

The #SundaySupper crew has school in mind this week. Only a few more weeks before the kiddies strap on their back packs and bust out their shiny new folders and colorful pens. Summer sure did fly right on by. I remember loathing the day I had to go back to school–not even colorful pens and funky animal shaped erasers could entice me to get excited about the upcoming school year.

Lucky for lunch boxes everywhere, this granola makes the perfect back-to-school snack for your kiddos. Heck, it makes the perfect lunch box snack for the adults, too. A batch will last you a few weeks… Unless you’re like me and eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner; then it may only last you a week.

To give this granola its creamy flavor, I used a whopping 2 tablespoons of vanilla extract. I also sprinkled in some white chocolate chips to boost the creaminess and sweeten up the granola.

My new favorite dried fruit is dried blueberries. Drying the blueberries condenses their flavor, giving them more blueberry flavor than a fresh blueberry.  They’re soft, chewy, and super sweet.

Your kids won’t be able to resist this crunchy snack.

    I love granola too. My husband makes fun of me because I eat my granola with a little bit of yogurt, rather than the other way around like most people. This looks like a delicious combination that I’m going to have to try.

    Girl, I’m not at all surprised that orders for your granola are flying it – every granola recipe you post looks amazing! This blueberry ‘n cream version is no different – I don’t even think it’d take me a week to polish it off. I just bought a jar of coconut oil yesterday so I can’t wait to try all your recipes. Congrats on the new business venture – I have no doubt you’re going to continue being super successful!
