Granola Recipes

With homemade granola you control what goes in; use all the ingredients you like and none of those you don't. And, of course, granola is a fabulous breakfast idea, a great snack (whether eaten by the handful or made into granola bars), and as dessert; sprinkled on ice cream or turned into a parfait.
