Doing the grocery shopping on a grad wife budget, do you ever find yourself drooling over the fancy pants granola and museli at the grocery? I sure do. I ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ at the pretty little packages and all the yummy granola mixes with every possible dried fruit known to man and loads upon loads of delicious nuts.
I mentioned before that the kitchen is not my forte, and I can assure you that this super easy recipe comes out flawless every time! No more wishing, follow these directions and make your own mouth watering granola at home!
I usually double the recipe so we can eat it for a while or I like to put the extra in a cute glass container and share some as a gift. p.s. it also makes a wonderful study snack to send to the library with your hubby.
You can add almost anything to this recipe to give the granola some extra flair. Try chocolate chips (but only when cooling) or sunflower seeds or dried apricots. Be creative with what you have you laying around the kitchen. Yumm!!
