My sisters and I got this recipe from a good family friend of ours, which she got from her trainer. This granola is delicious! I have tried many different kinds of granola over the years and this one might just take the cake. It is very easy to throw together and has a ton of flavor.
I put it on my Greek yogurt this morning for breakfast; you could also have it as a cereal with milk...or just plain! It's reaallly good.
