Walnut Vanilla Granola

November 29, 2018

I can proudly say this is one of the best granola I ever had! The beauty of granola is, you can actually see difference in flavor by adding different nuts. I normally enjoy almond granola and thought that is best of all. But walnut granola is above it. 

And I know walnuts are a bit expensive, as we always say check wholesale shops for nuts and seeds. They have best deals. 

Do you know China is the largest producer of walnuts in the world.
