Honey Nut Granola

Home ยป Honey Nut Granola

Homemade granola is so easy to make. If you haven’t done it, you really should try it. It’s super easy the kids can help make, and it tastes so good. I like to control the ingredients in my food. This granola recipe focuses on honey-nut flavors. You can use peanut butter or almond butter. I added chocolate chips because it would be extra fun for the kids, but you really don’t need to. This is one of my favorite flavor combinations, and it’s super quick and easy to make. It makes a delicious breakfast or afternoon snack.
