We are a granola family for sure. Everyone from Dad to 2-year-old Maria loves granola - on top of plain yogurt in the morning, mixed in with açai after a couple hours on the beach, or even just as a little snack while watching a movie. Homemade snacks
are always a win, and granola is a a great homemade snack, easy to make with your kids. I find that buying my own ingredients and making granola at home is always more cost efficient than buying from the store. Not to mention how so much of store bought granola is loaded with sugar, additives, and sometimes even high fructose corn syrup. My husband is the baker in the family and he was always experimenting with different granola recipes, modifying here and there until he created his granola masterpiece
. Making granola at home is easy, the only hard part is making sure that the granola doesn't burn. This recipe that I'm going to share does a good job at making sure the granola is moist before putting it in the oven, and if you check on the granola every 10 minutes while it's baking you'll prevent it from burning. I promise you, you'll have a hard time going back to the store bought kind. And if I need to convince you further then think about all of the homemade jam and marmalade that's gifted as holiday presents in glass jars this time of year. Well, homemade granola also looks cute in a glass jar and can be a great holiday gift.
