  • This is good as a morning cereal with milk or eaten plain as a snack.
  • Dried fruit may be added after the granola has cooled.
  • This makes a great trail mix if you add dried fruit and some M&M's to the mix.
  • Adjust the amount of honey if you prefer a sweeter cereal.

I am not for sure where I found the original recipe--maybe the Wichita Eagle Beacon. It does not matter since I have made many changes to the original. That is the beauty of this recipe. You can easily adjust it to your individual taste.

  1. I know you have given me this recipe before, but I'm so glad you put it on here. Now, I have no excuse for not keeping some on hand. We should have Grandma do something like this for all our favorite recipes!
