Breakfast/Brunch Cereals

The Best Granola

Searching through all the granola options on supermarket shelves drove me crazy. None really ever fitted what I was looking for.

This Granola recipe is very forgiving. You can swap ingredients or omit ingredients as you choose. Remember to add any fruits after you have baked it though!

My oats hating husband even eats this terrific fast and easy Granola.
