Granola

Granola is such an amazing breakfast and snack. Making it at home means you get to choose what goes into your granola and the possibilities are endless! Homemade granola is also lower in sugar, nasties and cheaper than their store-bought friends. I never buy granola from the store and after you have tried this recipe, hopefully, neither will you.
