Nutty Home Made Granola

 

Granola doesn’t last in my household. It goes as fast as I pull it out of the oven. Sometimes I wonder why I even bother prepare it.  Well… besides the crunchy,  nutty texture of the oats and toasted nuts, and the sweet taste of the dried fruits that makes it super d’luscious……um…ok…that’s why I make em.  I admit, I do enjoy every single bite just like everyone else in the house.

My son D’Angelo is such a granola gremlin.  He has no granola self control  whatsoever.  He prepares tons of parfaits with it. Being that I always have blueberries and greek yogurt on hand, he doesn’t hesitate to whip up a quick, d’luscious and healthy parfait for himself, over ….and over again….until it’s completely gone. This might sound kinda crazy, but I think I’m gonna have to keep a jar of this granola in my bedroom,  so I can enjoy it at my own leisure.

Here’s the recipe to my home made GRANOLA. It’s awesome with yogurt or ice-cream, or simply solo.
