Fruity Granola Recipe

When you get a craving for a wholesome snack, go with Nancy Chapman's granola. "You'll love the chewy sweetness of the honeyed cereal, fruit and nut mixture," she assures from Center Harbor, New Hampshire. "It's great as a snack out of hand or in a parfait glass, layered with low-fat yogurt."
