    looks delicious, i haven’t made homemade granola before, i should definitely give this a shot and pin it :)

    • aw, yes please pin it! Pinterest is where my inspiration came from for this one. I eat it for breakfast with skim milk and it is the prefect start to the day! Let me know how it turns out!

    Have started to make this for breakfast. It keeps you so full and i like that you can control the sugar (which I am working on doing). I have halved the oil and honey and it still turns out great.

  4. Coconut! Yes! Yes! Yes! I’ll make this. Thanks for checking out my blog. Sourdough is not easy to learn, or at least if wasn’t for me. People seem to get to my blog just a little more when I post recipes associated with my stories. I’ll see how I can create a pingback to your site.
