The BEST Granola Recipes

Yum
Are you ready for some amazing granola recipes?
Today looks like a great day to stay in and bake some granola.
Your house will smell amazing and you will have breakfast from your pantry for the whole week!
Pick your favorite combo or make all of them.  Just add some milk or your favorite yogurt to create a power packed meal to start the day.  The BEST Granola Recipes are headed your way!


Making your own granola is easy.  It also allows you to control the ingredients.  Oats, nuts and dried fruit are baked on a cookie sheet at low temperature for no more than an hour.  The combinations are endless!  Let each batch cool and then store in an airtight container for a week to 10 days.  Now let's check out some of my favorite combos.

Cherry Chocolate Granola
Cherry Chocolate Granola is a chocolate flavored granola with dried cherries, almonds and mini chocolate chips all sweetened with honey, brown sugar and cherry juice.  Layer with yogurt to make fun parfaits!  Looks like dessert for breakfast!  No kiddo or adult, can resist! 


Coconut Pecan Granola
Coconut flakes and pecans are an integral part of this granola.  You will also find that cinnamon flavor too!  Again, sweetened with just honey and brown sugar.  Like being on an island!  Cold winter mornings need this!

Praline Granola

With Mardi Gras just around the bend, celebrate the taste of New Orleans with a Praline Granola.
This one starts with your favorite granola, then you doctor it up by adding toffee bits and pecans.  When you don't have the hour to make your own granola, grab a box of your favorite prepackaged, low fat, plain granola and just add a few ingredients.
You may feel like you are hangin' at the bayou!

Cinnamon Apple Walnut Granola

I almost forgot to include this one!  Oats, multi-grain Cheerios, dried apples, walnuts and cinnamon make this combo.  A little bit of apple juice or cider with honey provide that extra flavor to take this granola to the top!  AMAZING flavor!

What a great way to start the day!
You will be ready to take on anything from a day at the office to a day of doing laundry...
go get 'em!
Celebrate the little things that make life sweet,
Christine
