Gotta Have Granola
Warming, toasty and ultra-comforting, homemade granola is the perfect snack, yogurt parfait topping or applesauce mix-in. Prep could not be more simple. Great option for those long wintry weekends when you are hanging at home, as baking time is long but mostly passive. To make this version gluten-free, substitute additional whole oats for wheat germ, and for a nut-free granola, use raw pumpkin seeds instead of pecans. Enjoy!
