One of my favorite snacks is Home-made Granola. I love snacking on it late at night watching TV or at work when I am at my break during my 12-hour shift. I have always loved granola. I have bought the store-bought version several times, but home-made is still better. You can add many things to granola such as maple syMarup, dried fruits, nuts, and even made it grain-free. I prefer adding dried fruits and nuts to my granola recipe. This recipe is versatile and can be changed to fit your taste and preferences. You can store home-made granola in an airtight container, which i prefer or a large Ziploc bag. Enjoy!
