Vegan Salted Caramel Granola with Walnuts and Figs


Hey peeps, 
spring has officially arrived here in northern Germany and I couldn't be happier. If there is one thing that always lifts my mood it's bright sunshine on my skin and birds singing outside. I'm writing this in front of a huge window looking into the blue sky that seems to be endless. 

I originally planned to bring you a bomb filled easter egg recipe, but even though they tasted amazing, I promise you wouldn't believe that when you saw them - biggest fail ever. But instead I present you a salted caramel granola recipe that was 100% inspired by Patricia from Nourish My Bliss, thanks so much for bringing this goodness into my life. I'm addicted. 

Ready for the most amazing granola recipe EVER?!
