Homemade Maple Nut Granola
Maple nut granola and other breakfast cereals are expensive and come in a lot of packaging. In addition, granola often contains a higher fat content than I want. That’s why I started experimenting with my own granola recipes years ago. I have several recipes that my family enjoys, but this maple nut version is my favorite!
