Breakfast is served.
Confession: this is the first time I’ve made homemade granola & I can’t believe how seriously I’ve been missing out! Recipe from my sister-in-law, it’s a combination of her favorite recipes and can be easily adapted to your family’s tastes. The basics are gluten-free oats, 2 types of chopped nuts (we used walnuts & pecans), coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, sea salt and dried fruit (we used cranberries). Guess what we’re eating for breakfast tomorrow…
