Get My Day Started Granola
35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)
13 ingredients

This granola is what gets my family started nearly every day. I experimented with different ingredients until I hit upon the combination we like best. I've tried using different amounts of oil and honey to make it as healthy as possible and the amounts shown here are the lowest I've been able to go without sacrificing flavor. If you want to omit a nut for lower fat content, omit walnuts since they are the highest in fat. I mix 1/3 cup of this with a fat free vanilla yogurt and my metabolically blessed husband devours a big bowl of this with just milk. This granola will clump somewhat if that's how you let it cool, but if you want clumpier granola you'll need to increase the wet ingredients.
