Granola is incredibly versatile. It makes a superb breakfast when paired with fresh fruit and milk, a great snack when eaten by the handful and a healthy dessert when mixed with some dark chocolate.

The best part is this easy granola recipe takes only 5 minutes of active preparation. Then, just sit back and relax while it's in the oven as you're enveloped by the smell of freshly baked granola.
