Homemade Granola- better for you, cheaper, and easy as pie!

My family loves granola. & nbsp;They like it on their yogurt, plain as a snack, and with milk at breakfast. & nbsp;Sadly I am so cheap that I would only buy a box of granola from the store as a treat. & nbsp;I mean those boxes of granola are expensive and small! & nbsp;My eldest & nbsp;daughter & nbsp;is always begging me to buy it but I say no because it only lasts one day.

Well the other day I was browsing one of my & nbsp;favorite & nbsp;sites and came across a link to another blog about making healthy homemade granola. & nbsp;And so I bopped over to see how hard it was to make. & nbsp; Well I have to say that granola is as easy as mixing up mud and you just throw it in the oven. & nbsp;This recipe makes a delicious granola like some of the high end ones you find in the store. & nbsp;Now I make a batch every week and like it so much that I have it for breakfast. & nbsp;Just to let you know I am not a big granola fan so that tells you how good this is. & nbsp;My kids love it and call it yummy crunchy mix and have it for snack, on yogurt, or with breakfast. & nbsp;As a side note my son will not eat vegetables willingly so he gets very little of essential minerals, but granola (with my tweaks) has huge amounts of these very important nutrients.

Also this recipe seems to help regulate blood sugars due to the use of the nuts which add protein.

Now as with most of my recipes I have tweaked it to add nutrition and cater to our family tastes so I will give you the original and then my tweaks. & nbsp;Also granola is very healthy for you with tons of essential vitamins and minerals that most of us Americans don't get. & nbsp;Some of the nutritional & nbsp;benefits & nbsp;of the ingredients are

Wheat germ- high in vit E
Molasses- high in
& nbsp;manganese18%





vitamin B65%
