Cinnamon, nutmeg and honey add a dash of heartwarming charm to this crunchy homemade granola. "We like it over yogurt or milk, but it's also good on it's own as a snack," promises Oshkosh, Wisconsin's Margaret Potempa. New dietary recommendations encourage half of the grains in the diet to come from whole grains like the oatmeal in this recipe. Try sprinkling this granola on yogurt, salads, ice cream and baked winter squash to help meet your dietary goals.

"I have made this receipe many times and shared it with friends. It's delicious with fresh blueberries and yogurt or dried fruit and yogurt. I double the nutmeg and cinnamon for a bolder flavor, but it's good either way. easy to make."

"I had a really tough time making this- it was extremely messy. Mediocre responses to it- no one was a big fan and it took a while for the batch to get finished. I wouldn't put the work in to make it again."
