Pineapple Coconut Plant Based Granola

I was standing in the Whole Foods cereal/granola aisle reading the ingredients of nearly every “healthy” granola on the shelves… and then I gave up.

Peppermint Johnny’s

The pumpkin coffee there only has…

It beats almost every other I’ve tried, and it’s perfect…
