Okay, I am very excited about this! I love granola and I mean loveeeeee. I can literally eat granola just right out of the bag as a snack. I’m just all about it. I’ve tried so many different kinds, some that I love and still purchase today, and also some that I will never have again, lol. But granola is perfect for so many things. It can be topped on your yogurt, or on your smoothie, you could have it with some berries, or just pour some in a bowl and call it cereal! I’ve done it! Try it on our, overnight oats recipe it’ll be so scrumptious! It’s literally the best snack and once I figured out how easy it was to make, I jumped on it and bought all the ingredients immediately.
There are so many different ways to make granola, so many different flavors you can add to it, different nuts or seeds, whatever you like! I love nuts in my granola especially almonds and cashews because they are my favorite. This recipe is super simple, to the point, takes hardly any time at all to throw together! All you have to do is wait anxiously for the granola to finish baking in the oven! But trust me, it’s soooooo worth it!
