This easy maple granola recipe uses real maple syrup, along with juicy raisins and slivered almonds. We’re in love.
Some of you might remember this recipe.
This is a recipe I shared a few years ago now, and it’s morphed a bit over the course of time. I’ve made a few updates to the recipe and taken new pictures. It’s a classic; I love the light maple flavor, the nuts, the raisins, and that it’s easy to make. It’s versatile, too — if you have different items in your pantry, it’s easy to modify and make it your own.
Several readers have told me this is one of their favorites.
Granola + yogurt = match made in heaven. Really. Have you tried it?
Feel free to pile it high on a big bowl of homemade yogurt.
