Once you try these three fabulous granola recipes, you'll never want store-bought again! In addition to being infinitely more delicious than anything you can buy, all of these recipes come together quickly and require minimal effort - a win-win-win!
Whenever we're expecting guests, I whip up one of these three fabulous granola recipes. That makes breakfast super simple for me and everyone loves starting the day with a bowl of yogurt topped with fresh fruit and granola. Of course, I often add a quiche or fritatta and maybe a batch of scones, biscuits or muffins but it's nice to have a light, healthy option.
These three fabulous granola recipes are all super simple to make. Basically you just combine the dry ingredients (oats, nuts and/or seeds) in a big bowl. Warm the wet ingredients (oil,maple syrup or honey) in the microwave. To finish up your part, simply combine the two, stir well and turn the mixture out onto a sheet pan. The oven, magically, does the rest of the work while you read a good book, catch up with a friend or take a little nap. An hour or so later, you've got a beautifully golden, super crunchy, amazingly delicious batch of granola. Sound good? Here are the recipes:

Thought for the day:
Seek the Lord and His strength;
seek His Presence continually.

Just a quick question. . . . you guys appear so fit and your recipes are delicious. Can you tell us what you eat in a normal day? I LOVE your muffins and that's my weakness but know I can't have every day. Thanks.

Thank you, Denise, for your kind words!
Honestly, keeping fit is a constant struggle, especially with a recipe development website. We try to eat a pretty healthy diet, for the most part. A low-calorie, high-protein breakfast which is usually a low-carb wrap and eggs or a chicken sausage and some fresh fruit. We often will just eat two meals a day, a later breakfast, an apple halfway through and then dinner. Of course, it's difficult when we are always testing recipes but we try to give a lot away.
Exercise is also a big key for us. We love to ride bikes, hike and walk and we do Pilates several times a week. Even with all this, it's a struggle to keep the weight down!
