This is a recipe I tore out of a magazine, but I can’t remember which one. I love collecting recipes, but I don’t particularly love to cook. I keep thinking “one day” I’ll make this. Well that “one day” finally came for this recipe. It was easy and as an added bonus I already had most of the ingredients.
The granola keeps for about two weeks stored in an airtight container at room temperature. You can also customize the recipe to your liking. Maple syrup and honey can be substituted for the agave. I used the agave because I own a huge bottle of it. I like to use it in my coffee as a sweetener because it doesn’t affect your blood sugar. I also added dried cherries and raisins to my granola.
