Best Granola in the World

I discovered The Best Granola in the World because it was offered as a hostess gift to me. I had forgotten about it for awhile and it languished for a month at the back of the cupboard. When I finally tried some for breakfast I couldn’t believe how much I loved it. It was light and flavourful, crunchy and delicious. I’d abandoned eating granola awhile ago because I find most of them too heavy, too dry, too sweet, just generally too much!  I managed to hunt down the owner of the recipe and I made my own batch this weekend and it’s equally as fantastic as what I received. It’s also a great starting point to innovate -add your own twists and turns. So hear it is. And the best thing…there’s not a drop of oil in this recipe!
