Best Granola Ever!

My husband, Bruce, makes the best granola ever! I am always counting calories, so I top my high fiber, organic breakfast cereal with a tablespoon or two for a little YUM, along with frozen blueberries, or add it to my yogurt or low fat frozen yogurt as a topping. What a treat!

“I’ve been making this granola off and on since my college days; I think it might have originally been an Adele Davis recipe that my mom modified, and I’ve created my variation here.” – Bruce
