Snackin' Granola Recipe

Publisher Photo
Granola's a popular treat with children, and this one couldn't be easier to prepare. I flavor it with lots of tasty good-for-you ingredients. It's perfect to send in bag lunches or to serve after school. I've also used it as an "in-the-car" treat when we take family vacations. —Marlene Mohr, Cincinnati, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 27, 2013

"I've not yet made this recipe, but it makes me yearn for fall days, especially as the kids start back to school! I think I would change up the plums, apricots and raisins for dried cherries, which would give it a nice color. Dried cranberries or blueberries would work well, too! You could add dried pepitas and sunflower seeds in place of the sesame seeds. I would use dark chocolate chips to contrast the dried cherries. This is a great recipe!"
