For me, granola is the food of champions. We eat this granola all day-on top of cereal, as cereal, as a snack or on with yogurt or ice cream. It has no added sugar and is delicious. A little sweet and a little salty, this snack will satisfy everyone.
When we are headed out on a road trip, we pack up enough jars to hold off hunger pangs until we can find a good place to eat.
We have resorted to making a triple batch of granola every Sunday night. We pack it into mason jars so that it is ready for everyone to grab and go, or to break up as a topping.
My daughter has taken over the responsibility of granola production and does a great job. With supervision, this recipe is great to get the kids involved. We use our food processor to chop up everything quickly, but little hands can help with all the stirring that needs to be done.
Do not let the list of ingredients scare you off – this is a very simple recipe for a delicious whole food snack.
