Nutty Granola Clusters

I have ALWAYS loved granola. I’d take it over any sort of cereal any day.

I have also always LOVED oats. There is definitely a pattern here ;).

This nutty granola is the perfect combo of sweet and salty, and pairs amazingly with my favourite, whole goat’s milk yogurt, topped on a bowl of oatmeal, or mixed into a hearty smoothie.
