(This is how it will look before it is cooked)

I have recently rediscovered granola. I've eaten it before, here and there, but lately I have been craving it! I have loved putting it in yogurt, and eating it as cereal. I'm not the only one that's been eating it too, the whole family likes it. I had a few bags of granola that were given to me and I'm on the last bag. I didn't want to go buy some at teh store because it's a bit pricey. so I figured I would do what I usually do when I don't want to pay full price- make it myself. As I looked up recipes, there are a ton out there! But I just wanted something simple since I didn't want any bran, flax seed, wheat germ, sesame seeds, etc. I know that stuff is probably good for you, but I'm not a bird, I don't want a lot of seeds. I found a couple recipes I liked and did my usual thing of taking what I like from each and combining it into the one I use. I love that this is just a plain simple one and it is easy to add whatever you want. I can't wait to try my own variations of different fruits, nuts and maybe even some chocolate chips. Yum!!
