Homemade Granola

Perfectly golden homemade granola, a healthier and tastier alternative for breakfast, dessert or even as a snack. I love making this recipe for, and with my kids. They enjoy spending time with me in the kitchen with me, and this is one of their favourite breakfast recipes to make together. It is easy for them to make, I get to control the amount of sugar we add and they feel proud to serve us something they have made with their small cute hands. Hope you enjoy this recipe!
