I have a confession to make.
I'm a granola addict. I admit it.
It all started at the girl's trip with my sisters and mom. My sister Nicole brought a big baggie of her homemade granola. We ate it with yogurt and fruit every morning and I couldn't. get. enough. It is SO good. It has the perfect amount of sweetness and lots of crunch.
Truth be told, I'd had the recipe written down for a while in my recipe folder but just hadn't made it yet. After devouring several bowl fulls of the stuff on our trip, I decided I HAD to introduce my family to this amazing granola.
I made it twice in one week and just bought the ingredients to make it a third time! In fact, the last time I made it, my neighbor actually came over to my house and knocked on my door and asked what I was baking because it smelled so good!!! Can you believe that?!?! Yep, people. Be prepared for a serious treat that will make your kitchen smell amaizng!
Nicole is known around her neck of the woods for this granola so consider yourself lucky to be getting her secret classified recipe. ;)
