Granola


We needed something to snack on in our house besides chips or cookies and I saw this on my Google Reader (love that thing!) and it was just what I was looking for.  I adapted this recipe quite a bit, adding things I knew we'd like and omitting things I didn't care for or have on hand. 

It turned out great and I did not use it as bars, but crumbled it and put into 2 containers, one to put in the freezer for later and one for the fridge to use as cereal, a snack or a topping for yogurt.
