Who doesn’t love granola?
Oh man, it can be addictive even, can’t it? As much as I love it, I haven’t eaten granola in a pretty long time. I’ve made lots of different versions of granola recipes, and I’ll probably make it again and change this up even more. Feel free to play with this recipe and have some fun with it. Add things you love and make it your own.
