Granola goes with everything. Trust.
Granola has had a serious Glow Up over the last 20 years. Do you remember eating Nature Valley Granola Bars every day as a snack as a kid? Then there was a phase where everyone was eating granola for breakfast. Granola on an overpriced Acai bowl is still having a moment. Let's not forget when being #glutenfree was the most important thing on the planet, and eating granola was trendy AND gluten free.
With the rise of popularity, came the rise of prices, and the rise of fake, preserved granola all over the grocery stores.
I couldn't keep spending $15 for a small bag of granola that has 45 different ingredients in it, and was only 1 cup of actual food. So I decided to make my own.
This recipe has 7 ingredients, is gluten free, and can cost as low as $2 per cup (depending on the brands you buy). It is another very easy recipe, that is not a lot of effort, and will have your house smelling SO GOOD!
Should we name everything you'll get to eat this once you make it, or should we just make it? I think we should just make it.
