| October/November 2008

Makes 6 cups

This mixture is so versatile you’ll want to keep a supply in the refrigerator to use at breakfast and other meals. Substitute granola for old-fashioned rolled oats in any recipe; use it as a topping for casseroles; or combine it with yogurt and fruit for a quick and wholesome breakfast.
