Homemade Granola


Are your breakfast choices getting dull and monotonous?   Need to add something new to the mix?  Do you get the munchies during the day and wish you had something both yummy and nutritious to snack on?

Here’s an easy recipe for granola I got from my friend Janet that can be used as a topping for yogurt but is also scrumptious enough to be eaten alone.  I am not a health food nut by any means, nor am I a granola fan…at least I wasn’t before I made this recipe.  It not only tastes great, but it makes your house smell absolutely d-lish!

Save yourself some time and make a double or triple batch to last you throughout the month!

    I’ve experimented a bit with granola. My favorite combo was a chocolate peanut butter banana granola we came up with. It included banana chips, peanut butter, cocoa, and bittersweet chocolate. I also like to throw in cashews.
