Maple Cinnamon Granola

Breakfast | July 12, 2015 | By

It’s hard to believe that the time in the morning, before work or school, in any house is anything less than chaotic. Even if you’ve meticulously planned your outfit and packed your lunch the night before, mornings are inevitably a time for forgetting things, alarms not to go off and things to spill. So it’s nice to have something pre-made for breakfast: something that was done when you had a little more coffee in you. This granola is great on yogurt, smoothies or with milk, and can be changed easily: swap any of the nuts or dried fruit out for what you like or what’s in your cupboard! Even if you’re having a hectic morning, as they so often are, this granola will be there and waiting as a tasty and quick breakfast to make everything better. Just be sure to check for burning when you make it; I can’t use the craziness of the morning as an excuse – I burned mine at 3 in the afternoon. What can you do.
