Homemade Vanilla Granola

Homemade Vanilla Granola

My little sister is visiting this week and she’s requesting cereal! Hmmm…we don’t normally eat cereal and my kids aren’t yet old enough to ask for it (I don’t even think they know what it is.) But it got me thinking is there was something I could make that would be similar.

Granola….of course. It’s crispy crunchy and great in a bowl covered in raw milk or dolloped with fresh vanilla yogurt. She totally approved and it was so good that we went through the first batch in under two days!

This recipe is just sweet enough, delightfully crunchy and pretty frugal too.

Most of you will already have most of these ingredients in your pantry and this recipe is so easy, you can play with the ingredients and add in other flavors, nuts etc. Granola doesn’t have to be boring.

So ditch the over-priced, sugar-laden store bought granola cereal! Seriously, that stuff has more sugar in it than a candy bar. With homemade granola, you have complete control over the healthy ingredients.
