I’m serving up something sweet and delicious today, but it’s not a dessert this time… it’s granola!

I think after that pie, whipped cream and cake, it’s time for some balance.

Don’t lower your expectations, though, because once you have a taste of this Maple Nut Granola, you’ll be hooked. I mean, seriously, there’s maple syrup in here – what’s not to love? And, it’s homemade, and homemade is always better and than store-bought.

The crunchy texture of this granola will have you nibbling away straight from the palm of your hand. I can’t let go of it until it’s all gone. I suck on the oats just to get every bit of that sweet taste in my mouth. As if you don’t do that. Sure, I throw it over some fruit and cereal, but a girl’s gotta snack, too.

You know what else is great about this recipe? You can totally customize this granola to your own liking. More pecans, less almonds, dried fruit, no fruit… it’s up to you. Then, just add it to your cereal, yogurt, or fruit. Or do as I do – grab the jar, stick your hands in, and eat!

I always make granola in large batches and store it in glass jars or in an airtight container. It keeps good for weeks.
