Olive Oil Granola and Honey

    olive oil granola and honey

    Granola is a sneaky little cereal. Marketed as a healthy breakfast option, most store bought versions are loaded in sugar, fat and calories. To be perfectly honest, I also think it is dry and coyingly sweet. So I decided to make my own version: a bit chewier, nuttier and much less sweet. If you’d like to make it a bit sweeter, feel free to stir in raisins, dried apricots of dried cherries. My preference is to serve it in a parfait with plain yogurt and fresh fruit. Granola is also tasty sprinkled into pancakes, muffins or served simply with a splash of milk.

    Your spoon is waiting.
