Make Ahead

Maple Pecan Granola

Author Notes

I just love making granola because it is so easy, creates a wonderful aroma that lasts for hours, and feels SOOOO good when I go to the supermarket and see how much they are charging for an itty-bitty bag that doesn't taste nearly as good as my homemade stuff. —Ordinary Blogger (Rivki Locker)
