Get-Up-and-Go Granola

My family loves to have this soul-warming granola before hiking, biking or even when camping. It smells delicious while baking up and you can easily make in large batches for special occasions or to send in gift packages to family and friends. —Sabrina Olson, Otsego, Minnesota

    Just re-visiting this recipe to make for the 5th time! I now always have this granola available in my pantry and agree with other reviewers who adjust the recipe based upon whatever they have on hand.
