Weekend Project: Make Granola

Posted

Granola is a healthy and delicious snack. Depending on the brand that you purchase in the store, it can be filled with preservatives and extra sugar. That’s why it can be a fun family activity to make at home. Granola tastes great when sprinkled on plain or vanilla yogurt. It can also be packaged in a pretty sack with a bow to surprise someone special.
