Hazelnut Cardamom Granola Clusters

Yogurt and granola make the perfect breakfast for these busy parents. With a little prep, we can enjoy Hazelnut Cardamom Granola Clusters over yogurt all week! 

I was listening to one of my favorite podcasts, Side Hustle School, when I heard an ad for Noosa Yoghurt Contest. I absolutely love Noosa Yoghurt and knew I had to enter. The contest calls for food lovers to share their ideas for new Noosa flavors.

As I thought about my entry, I wanted to incorporate nuts and cardamom and came up with this. This recipe is adapted from Wholesome Dish and is totally versatile. You can use whichever nuts you like (or omit them and add more dried fruit!)
