Our granola recipe is a delectable combination of seeds, nuts, fruits, and biscuits that provide a slightly sweet, chewy, and crunchy eating experience. It is easy to make and pack, which makes it great for taking on trips, including in school lunches, or keeping in your drawer for healthy snacking needs. Placed in mason jars, it can even be a quick and pretty gift for someone special. Go whip up a batch today and enjoy it over the weekend.
