Homemade Granola.

Homemade Granola 1The rain seems to have settled in our area along with cooler temperatures. I am actually loving this. Our normal spring may be warmer and drier. I just love it when rain nourishes my garden. In the meantime, I am taking on indoor activities.

Homemade Granola 2I made this Homemade Granola for my family. It is filled with nourishing ingredients that are not only good for you, but also delicious.

Homemade Granola 3This morning I gave some to Dearest over Vanilla Bean Greek Yogurt. He liked it! I plan to make this an alternative to some of the more heavier breakfast dishes he normally likes.

Homemade Granola 4After I took this sampling to him in his office upstairs I noted the house was filled with the aroma of the cinnamon and dried fruit – a warm comforting fragrance.

this recipe filled this Anchor Hocking ‘Montana’ jar I found at Kroger – I removed two cups for the pictures.

To round out this breakfast you could add fresh oranges and a warm cup of Green Tea. A marvelous way to begin the day.
