Alton Brow, host of the best Food Network Show on the planet, Good Eats, has a granola recipe that will make you want to eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Yep, it’s that good.
His granola is crunchy, nutty and full of maple-y and coconut-y flavors and is so good I can barely walk past my pantry without going in for a handful every. Single. Time. So here’s the recipe. Enjoy it. And I’m sorry for your future addiction.
*Disclaimer: I altered the recipe a tad to make it healthier by substituting pecans for cashews, using less sugar and using less vegetable oil.
