Homemade Granola Recipe

The smell of homemade granola toasting in the oven is heavenly! Many of the packaged versions are loaded with sugar and can have other undesirable additives too. So you’ll be pleased to know that making granola at home is actually super simple! I love knowing exactly what ingredients are in my granola, and the best part is that you can customise this recipe by adding your favourite nuts, seeds and dried fruit. Homemade granola also makes a great gift—store it in a cute glass jar decorated with ribbon, and voila!

Can you make Homemade Granola ahead of time?
