Everyday Granola - Bon Appetit Magazine

***Here's a simple, quick and delicious recipe for "Everyday Granola."  I found this while flipping through a recent issue of Bon Appetit of my favorites!  The ingredients sounded perfect for what I had in mind.  It was sweet and salty at the same time, and makes an awesome snack.  You can serve it with yogurt or milk, but I preferred mine plain.

While it's baking, be sure to stir it around on the baking sheet every 10 minutes, as the recipe calls for.  This will keep the pieces around the edges from burning and ensure evenly cooked granola.

The combination of the salty and sweet in this granola is a crowd AND palate pleaser!

Bon Appetit!***
