How To Make Easy Homemade Granola

There’s a lot to love about this homemade granola recipe. It’s easy to make, it’s healthy, it’s delicious, and it will take the guesswork out of your morning breakfast routine.  My current breakfast go-to is, Vanilla Greek yogurt + homemade granola.  My other favorite breakfast ideas are these these three easy parfaits.

How to Store Homemade Granola:

Double this batch, set aside what you’ll use for this week, and vacuum seal the rest and save it for up to four weeks.  I use the FoodSaver® VS3110 and the vacuum zipper bags for vacuum storage.
