Homemade Granola Recipe

Homemade Granola Recipe-the best ever!!!


Every few Saturdays, I schedule a morning of BIG batch cooking. With a family of seven to feed, it is more economical and time effective to cook certain foods in large quantities to freeze...or serve immediately in a variety of different ways, as the case may be.

This simple granola recipes is one of my current GO TO big batch breakfast cooking meals and was given to me from one of my favorite women, the Architect's Wife. She is a woman of extraordinary hospitality and kindness and uses her kitchen as a means of ministry. She has given me permission to pass along her tasty treat to you. I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine!


*Because of the size of my family, I typically triple the recipe. But even then, it doesn't last for very long in my house! Be ready to file this under "family fave!"

I use this granola in homemade yogurt parfaits, on top of fruit for an afternoon snack, or with milk for a healthier breakfast cereal option.
