Christine NelsonIf you are looking for a tasty granola recipe to rival any store bought boxed cereal, you are in the right place.

My kids love it and enjoy it with fresh milk or as a topping to homemade yogurt. Who am I kidding, they love it any way they can get it. Those kids can put it away!

I found the original recipe on the Green Smoothie Girl Web site. I tweaked it a bit to fit what ingredients I had on hand and came up with this version. It’s definitely not a chunky, eat with just your hands granola, but perfect as a cereal replacement.

You see, I have my kids totally duped. They are not aware (yet!) that there is a world out there with crazy amounts of sugary boxed cereal to choose from. We never go down the cereal aisle thankfully and I’m happy keeping them in the dark as long as I can. It’s for their own good, darnit!

I love homemade granola. It’s kind of like potato chips for me though, once I grab a handful I just can’t stop!

So without further waiting, here it is. A super simple granola that will satisfy the hungry beasts in your household.

I love homemade granola! The house smells so good when you make it. I had trouble doing it in the oven with uneven baking. The edges would be burned, the center, raw. I do it in the crock pot now and it works well.
