I LOVE THIS GRANOLA!!
The combinations are absolutely endless and you can add, or subtract till you're...NUTS!
Okay...enough with the puns. But it's so good. I have a huge, pretty glass container of it on my counter at all times. Almost. It empties quickly...but it's easy to mix up and freezes great, if you need to do that.
This makes a lot - but sometimes I double the batch because it's not double the work. Stored in the freezer in ziploc bags it's ready and waiting when you are!
Sprinkle on yogurt, use as a crust for fruit crisp, eat out of hand, or in a big bowl of icy milk, or make into trail mix with added M&M's or dried fruit - any way is fabulous.
My dad used to make the granola in our house...brings back great memories of him in the kitchen. He-man baker...yep, he was. I miss those days, but can relive them through every batch. As my house wakes up to the smell of cinnamon and maple syrup and the toasty scent of nuts and oats, it sends me straight back to childhood.
I hope this becomes a favorite in your house, too...
I have one of the BIG stainless bowls - two and a half feet across, maybe. I mix it AND bake it in that - works great. I'm not kidding when I say it makes a LOT. Halve the recipe if you don't want to OD on granola!
