Making your own granola is so much easier than what you might think. It tastes significantly better than any that you buy at the store and it is cheaper! Give this recipe a try and I promise you will NEVER go back to buying granola at the store.
I always have a container of granola on hand at our house. It is delicious by the handfuls, as cereal, or on top your yogurt for a little homemade parfait.
One thing that I love about making your own granola is that you can control the amount of sugar that you put in it. Normally I follow the recipe though and just eat the granola in moderation. Even though this recipe is healthy, granola is still a high calorie food. Be careful, this stuff is ADDICTING!
My husband is not a fan of the dried fruit in the granola so sometimes I leave that out.
We always have a container of fresh granola in our cabinet. It is really easy to make and lasts for a long time. I have heard that you can freeze granola too. We have never needed to because we eat it pretty quickly, way before it has the chance to go bad. But, you could easily make a batch and freeze some for later.
I wish that food bloggers could insert smells into their posts. If we could, I would for this granola. I remember as a kid coming home from school many times to the smell of granola right out of the oven. When you make this recipe, I promise, you will not be able to eat just one handful!
