Granola is one of those breakfast foods that is so easy to make, but many people have never tried. If you are one of those that have never tried it, I encourage you to make some because it really is easy.
Not only is granola easy to make, you can control what goes into it and it is much less expensive than buying it in a box at the store.
I have quite a few homemade granola recipes on my site, but my family likes to keep breakfast fun and interesting and I like to come up with new flavors for them to enjoy.
We love this granola because it has Rice Krispies in it which makes it a little crunchier than some of the other homemade granolas that I make. That little bit of cereal added to this gives it a nice crunch and a little different taste that we really enjoy.
If you love homemade granola or want to give some other flavors a try you might like some of my other versions.
Homemade Coconut Granola is really good.
Easy Nut Free Granola is great for those with food allergies.
We love this Peanut Butter Granola and I used to make it all the time.
And pumpkin granola is perfect for fall, that is whenever we start having fall weather. Actually, this is really good any time of year.
