Homemade Granola

Granola is so versatile. Snack, yogurt topping, or with milk. I have been wanting to make a granola I could have for the boys to make little yogurt parfaits. This is such a customizable recipe that you can do so much with.

I wanted to come up with an easy and homemade granola that didn’t have any added sugar. The ones at the grocery are packed with so much unnecessary sugar. 

This recipe comes together so quickly. Granola has to bake for a really long time, but you can easily be doing other stuff (like more food prep!) while this is in the oven.
