Lizzy likes Down To Earth Granola too!
I can't remember where I found this version of home-made
granola but I have been making
it for about 10 years now.
You can change it up and use what ever
dried fruit you like.
It calls for raisins but this time I added dried
cranberries too. I like it!
I also added about 1/4 cup of
milled flax seed this time for more fiber etc.

Oliver loves his granola too
I hope you'll try this granola. It's also great on yogurt or just as a quick healthy snack.
