This was my first time making homemade granola, and I couldn’t believe how simple it was! Granola is one of those seemingly “healthy” and nutritious foods, but can be full of added sugars and too much fat. By making your own, you can keep track of the added sugars and calories.

- Spread on a baking tray and bake until ingredients seem toasted, about 20-30 minutes
