Easiest Homemade Granola

Homemade Granola

Granola is the perfect snack.  It’s very satisfying and filling.  This is the easiest granola you will ever make and makes a great breakfast cereal, even though my favorite way to eat it is on top of a thick custardy yogurt (post-workout).  It’s full of cinnamon, honey, and vanilla!

I usually just roughly chop the nuts, but if you prefer a much smaller texture, a food processor can be used.  If using a food processor, pulse the nuts in a few small batches so you don’t end of with nut meal.
