How to Make Homemade Maple Pecan Granola
With the kids home for snow days we were looking for things to entertain… We mixed up this batch of Maple Pecan Granola Recipe and it was a hit! Now hubs says it could be a bit sweeter (might add a bit of brown sugar next time for him). But I think it’s perfect for on vanilla yogurt (… or ice cream!)
Makes a Great Gift Too!
Another thing I love to do with homemade granola is fill up one of those jars and give it away. Gifts in a jar are so popular especially when they’re edible. I have given these to new neighbors, teachers at Christmas and friends coming home from surgery or with a new baby. Whatever the occasion, they will be appreciated as a heartwarming offering.
