The beauty and simplicity of homemade granola.

I am a lover of homemade granola.  Sweet and crunchy, granola is delicious served with fruit and milk for breakfast, stirred into yogurt or sprinkled on ice cream.

Before I knew how easy it was to make at home, I would search the shelves at the market for the perfect granola.  Prepackaged, processed and overpriced is what I would find.  The beauty of making something at home means that you can control what you put in it, how healthy it will be and what flavors you would like to add.   Add-ins could be shredded coconut, dried fruits, crunchy nuts, seeds and if you are feeling naughty chocolate pieces. Spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger can peak your taste buds.  Saying that making granola is ridiculously easy is an understatement.

Try my Cranberry & Chocolate Granola, Tropical Granola or just plain granola next time you have a craving.  I know I will.
