Homemade Granola

This is a great dish to experiment with! When it calls for 1 1/2 cups dried fruit get creative. Some ideas include cherries, cranberries, blueberries, apricots, pineapple, coconut, chocolate chips and peanut butter. This is also a good time to add some healthy extras such as flax or chia seeds.

  • 1/4 cup honey
