Here’s a holiday-flavored recipe to close out the year. We’ve been eating it for a few weeks at my house while I tested out the recipe, and it’s gotten rave reviews.
It’s great with yogurt or milk for breakfast, and we even snack on it mid-afternoon. Sweetened with pure maple syrup and molasses, it’s full of fiber and healthy fats from the oats and nuts.
If you think that homemade granola isn’t worth the trouble, trust me, it is! You’ll never suffer through the mediocre flavors of the best store-bought granolas again. While it does require about an hour of oven time, getting it into the oven only takes 10-15 minutes and then you can sit back and relax while the wonderful aromas permeate through your house.
