Granny’s Granola

Granny’s Granola

This is so yummy. Love this with my Creamy Dairy Free Yogurt. It is so crunchy and great to eat as a snack or breakfast. The topping/sauce can be switched up with my Great Grain Free Granola recipe if you prefer using honey rather than maple syrup as this recipe calls for. Check it out.
