Lately I have been all about taking traditionally sweet recipes and making them into savory ones. Just like I did with my savory oatmeal muffins, I am doing it once again with this savory granola. Although this is called granola, it isn't a typical granola at all. But for lack of a better term, and for some SEO purposes, I am calling it savory granola, insert *shrugs shoulders* emoji.

Even though we are having a ridiculously warm and humid day here in Toronto on the first day of October, it is fall despite what the calendar says. And this savory granola is the perfect snack to make. Lately, I've been feeling like my old self again. Summer was a lot of fun but I lacked a lot of discipline when it came to work, which is weird because I am one of those people that loves what they do.
I think it all comes down to how rough the beginning of the year was for me. As much as I tried to take time for myself post-breakup and I did, I also really focused on work a lot. And by the summer time, I really wanted to slow down and focus on having fun. Something I hadn't really done for so long. You know that kind of fun you have that brings a huge smile to your face to even think about. That's what I did. I think we underestimate how important fun is when we are adults. We are always doing something and rarely do we allow ourselves to simply just be and enjoy ourselves.
When was the last time you just had fun? If it's taking you a little while to think of something, that could be a good indication that you need to change that.
But what is this savory granola really all about?
Like I mentioned, this savory granola is not really a typical granola. There are no rolled oats and I wouldn't top my yogurt with this. This granola is more of a topper. The cheesy/cheezy flavour combined with some tamari and apple cider vinegar make it a really tasty snack that you can eat in a variety of ways.

Of course you could always just enjoy this on its own, by the handful as a snack. But other than that, here are some ideas on how to enjoy this tasty savory granola:
