Ahhhh granola! Such an amazing breakfast which can be freshly made ready for the week ahead. This granola stores well, tastes great and is packed with so many goodies to keep you going for longer without the sugar highs and lows of a store-bought granola. I haven't met a mouth yet that doesn't like this recipe!
