The BEST Granola

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Geema

This granola has as much fruit and nuts as it does oats. While most people love this as a nutritional powerhouse for breakfast, I use it as a pick-me-up snack in the afternoon. The fruit and nuts seems to boost my energy very well.

This is wonderfully delicious! I halved the recipe and used corn oil instead of canola. I didn't have much maple syrup, so I used some pancake syrup with maple syrup in it. I used dried cherries instead of cranberries. I could just eat this for a snack right out of my hand! Thanks for a yummy treat!!!
