I have tried, altered, discarded and invented countless versions for years until approximately ten years ago, I came upon a granola prototype that suited me in its simplicity.
I reduced the amount of fat and sweetener by half and came up with several combinations to suit my family's tastes. This recipe is designed for just that purpose... change.
I love nuts and seeds. My two precious girlies do not. We all adore toasted coconut. Get creative and make your family's fave!
1 c. nuts or seeds, or combination of both
2 c. raisins, dried, chopped fruit, dried berries
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 tsp. cinnamon
