Author Notes

We are lovers of granola. My husband and daughter douse theirs each morning with Straus milk while I prefer mine with Straus plain yogurt. It's often snacked on between meals as well. This is our most recent favorite. I've found inspiration from Nigella Lawson and the guys at Baked Bakery and turn to their recipes time and again. —maryjo
