I absolutely love granola.  But, I don’t love its price tag.  I can’t believe how expensive it is in the stores.  So I scoured the internet.  There are thousands of granola recipes out there.  But, I couldn’t find one that wowed me.  So, I took a bit of this one and a little of that one and compiled my own recipe.

This recipe turned out perfect!  A little crunchy, a little chewy, a little sweetness…bliss!  Since I concocted this recipe, I’ve made at least one batch every week.  Some weeks I make 2 or 3 batches.  It’s greatly mixed in with yogurt.  Or, in a bowl with some milk.  Or, just by itself.

Each time I make it, though, I add something different.  I’ve used dried blueberries, dried pomegranates, dried cherries, walnuts…whatever I have handy.  It’s all great!
