Homemade Granola – Easy as A-B-C!
Back to school means back to after school snacks in our house and homemade granola, especially this Honey Maple Pecan recipe, is a favorite. Granola is simple to make and solves the after school snack dilemma – tasty without a ton of added sugar and preservatives found in some store-bought versions. Spend a few minutes in the kitchen over the weekend and store in an airtight container for a delicious go-to snack throughout the week.
How to Use Homemade Granola
Personally, I like to eat it by the handful, but the usual suspects will work, too. Stir your granola into yogurt, sprinkle it over fruit salad, or add it to your pancake batter to give your flapjacks a crunch. I love the crunch it adds when I sprinkle it on my Tropical Berry Smoothie Bowl and it is out of this world on my Coconut Ice Cream.
Don’t skip the parchment paper! The honey and maple syrup will make for a very sticky clean up situation without it.
Swap out the pecans for your favorite nut or skip them altogether if nuts are an issue.
