I love making my own granola, it's quick and it tastes so much better than store bought cereal. Plus, I can make it low fat and I know what ingredients are going into it. It only takes 10 minutes of prep work and you can do always do other things while it is baking.
I eat this with milk, pour it over yogurt, and even zap it in the microwave with some water or milk and make granola oatmeal. Enjoy!
