What even is granola without the clusters? This Matcha and Caramelised Strawberry Cluster Granola is literally just a mixture of clusters. What could be better?
This recipe uses Cocavo Original, a blend of extra-virgin coconut and avocado oils. This is a nutritious way to cook the granola and add some healthy fats. Plus, it adds to the pretty matcha green hue!
