Recipe by Jen T

This is nice on its own with milk or use to make my 'Breakfast Cranachan', a mixture of cereal, raspberries and yogurt.

This is a super simple and really great granola cereal. I used real maple syrup and I also added 1/4 cup of oat bran. You can easily substitute other nuts, I basically use whatever is on hand when I make it now. Tastes great, extremely filling, and very nutritious! Not to mention easy and fast. It's the perfect breakfast.
