Homemade Granola Recipe

Homemade Vanilla Granola smells so good when it’s baking thanks to a touch of cinnamon–but you’ll the end result even more.

This easy granola recipe is yours to tweak! An old favorite from one of those large recipe websites (maybe, feel free to add your own dried fruits or other spin. If you do, you’ll wait to stir it in at the end so they do not dry out.

I love this as a dry snack. I love this with a bowl of milk. I even love this crumbled up and thrown on the top of vanilla ice cream! See what I mean? Versatile!
