Not long after Frog Prince and I got married, we started making our own cereal for breakfast. Our favorite breakfast to this day remains granola. For those of you like me with a nut allergy, granola from the stores is off-limits, so I was delighted to try my hand at making my own granola.
I am pretty sure we've made almost a batch a week every week since 2007.
I buy oats in bulk, making them just under 4 cents an ounce, which makes this breakfast option affordable too.
There's just something scrumptious about this granola that keeps us coming back to it again and again.
I love how versatile it is -- have it with ice cream, in applesauce, over yogurt, with or without milk, with dried fruit or fresh -- it's wonderful. In addition, I love having it around for a topping on apple crisp, apple pie, or even holiday sweet potatoes. Yum, yum.
Enjoy this week's peek into the archives!
