Elaine'S Homemade Healthy Granola Recipe @pinch

This homemade granola has great flavor. It's salty and sweet thanks to the maple syrup and honey. Fresh from the oven it has just the right amount of crunchiness. A healthier snack or breakfast option. Enjoy with some milk as cereal, sprinkle on top of yogurt, or just grab a handful when you want just a little something. This is a delicious recipe that is much healthier and fresher than the purchased granola. You control the sweetening. You can use all maple syrup to make it vegan. Switch the nuts if you prefer. I don't put dried fruit in it until after it is cooked. The fruit would dry up too much. Add raisins, chopped apricot, berries, or whatever you like after the granola has cooled. Can be used to top ice cream or other desserts.
