I've loved eating granola all my life, but for some reason I always thought that making it at home would be a complicated process that was not worth the hassle. I was so wrong!
A friend shared his granola recipe with me last year when I told him I quit eating added sugar and was having trouble finding granola brands without it. His recipe was sweetened with just a little honey, and the natural sweetness of the dried fruits. I tried it, fell in love with it, and realized that making this staple breakfast is actually a piece of pie!
Today I've used that same basic recipe to make a seasonal version with maple syrup, pepitas, walnuts and apples. You'll smell and taste the fall in every healthy, crunchy bite.
