I’ve been experimenting with different granola recipes lately. I made the switch from store bought to homemade granola a few years ago and haven’t looked back. Store bought is often too sweet, and made with cheap vegetable oils.
Admittedly, this recipe for Cherry Chocolate Maple Granola is indulgent. But it’s homemade, delicious, and makes me so happy in the morning eaten with plain whole yogurt and lots of berries, so I think it’s worth it.
I started making my own granola about two years ago and haven’t looked back since. Homemade is cheaper, more healthful, and delicious – once you start making it yourself, you will never want to go back to store bought again.
