Grand Granola

Recipe by: Dietitians of Canada

Granola is really just toasty oats tossed with a little oil and dried fruit. Some of the granola you buy in the store has a lot of sugar, so it’s great to make your own sometimes! This can be munched just as is, served with milk or yogurt, added to a smoothie, or made into power bars.
