For years and years I had it in the back of my mind to make Granola and then I just never got around to it!

I finally did and I don’t know what took me so long. I read a lot of different recipes to see the variety.  There is even a little history about how Granola (or Muesli) came to be here.

A lot of recipes use maple syrup or honey to make the sweetness and the crunch. There are so many different ideas online. I found this lovely one from Recipe Tin Eats. 


This whole pin is all about 20 healthy granola recipes. In fact there are tons of links on Pinterest (if you want to follow me on there I may have a few pins…. ;))

This is the recipe I used from Cook’s Illustrated. It’s a place I love to go for recipes I can count on. I always love their stuff. (Cook’s and America’s Test Kitchen.)


I changed up the nuts and I added in cranberries. That’s the lovely thing about granola, easy to adjust to your own tastes. And perfect for an easy quick breakfast.
