Why buy bagged granola for $5/6 a bag when you can make your own. Most of the pre-made granolas you buy in the store are made with tons of sugar or high fructose corn syrup, AND a lot of them (I've found) contain milk powder. This was so easy to make at home and tasted AMAZING. The nuts I used were all raw, unsalted. Feel free to swap out whatever nuts or dried fruit you might have on hand. I actually used pecans in place of the walnuts, and a mix of half raisins and half dried cranberries for the dried fruit. Next time I might try some dried blueberries
