Stress Free Granola
So I had a very stressful day today and release myself I've decided to bake which is something I refuse to do because what I bake never comes out as it supposed to. But today being a very stressful and wanting something sweet that's vegan so I thought baking would be the right remedy to my stress. Baking being my least of my skills instead of the granola turning into a granola bar it turned into a granola cereal, which is fine because I can still eat it either for breakfast or late night snack.
I love granola bars and cereal because it has many nutritional values; that could help lower your cholesterol and prevent certain chronic diseases.
This is my revised version of Oh She Glow granola with little modification here and there to make it my own.

- Preheat oven to 250F. While the oven is heating up grease a large rectangular baking dish and line with a piece of parchment paper so the bars are easier to lift out.
- In a large bowl, combine the gluten oats, steel-oat, coconut, almond, dried cherries, pepitas seeds, coca powder, cashews, and ginger. Thoroughly combine everything.
