Addictive and Healthy Granola

Addictive and Healthy Granola

"This recipe is addictive and very easy. It tastes like the top crunchy part of cobbler desserts. It would be good as a cereal with milk or to put in yogurt or topped on fruit that has been fried in a little butter and brown sugar. A dollop of homemade whipped cream wouldn't hurt the latter!"
