Homemade Granola

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  I get up at 5 am every day to get my wife out the door and make sure that she has something to eat, so i’m constantly trying to think of quick, healthy meals to make.

Homemade granola is so easy to make, and sooo delicious! It adds a little crunch to your oatmeal or yogurt, and has lots of nutritional value as well! Not to mention, your house smells amazing when it’s baking!
