Why buy granola when you can make healthy and delicious granola at home, for half the cost? Here are four easy, and great, granola recipes to try..

That’s the beauty of making it yourself. And it’s pretty in expensive too.
I fell in love with granola when I was in grade three. That’s when my mom received a recipe for granola in the mail from cousins who had moved from New Brunswick to California. I had the best recess snack in the class on granola day. By the time I was on my own I was in the habit of baking a weekly batch and you can still find a homemade jar or two in my cupboard.
Here are four great granola recipes to try this year:
Applesauce adds flavour and reduces the fat in this colourful recipe.

This is one of my favourite ways to eat granola. Nut-filled clusters are a cross between loose granola and a granola bar. The clusters are bite-sized so convenient for hand snacking. The recipe is on my personal blog…
