I love granola. It’s quick, tasty and substantial, making it perfect for breakfast or a snack. I love to eat granola in a fruit and yogurt parfait or I often enjoy it by the fistful. However, I don’t like paying such a high price for it at grocery stores. This is my
first second time trying homemade granola. The first attempt was the same day but I may have burned that batch. I loved the results of the second batch and it was gone in no time. This recipe is a keeper and I can’t wait to try some other variations!
