There’s just some food that is better when made at home and granola is one of them! I love a good granola – one that is sweet and salty, full of nuts and oats and of course, good for you! I’ve tried several recipes and this is one of my favorites PLUS it’s very versatile.
Use different nuts, add fruit, stir in a little flax or coconut oil – whatever you love can be added with ease and lack of fear that it won’t turn out! Give it a try!
Next time you’re in the mood for a good granola (and really who isn’t most of the time?!) try this recipe. Keep it in an airtight container in the pantry and add it to your yogurt, on top of ice cream or even in a bowl with milk for your breakfast cereal.
It’s so good AND good for you! This Healthy Homemade Granola will become a pantry staple in your home in no time!
