I’ve never been a huge breakfast person. I usually just stick to coffee and stave off my hunger until lunch. I know that for your metabolism’s sake, that’s one of the worst things you can do. In an effort to try to be a bit healthier this year, I’ve been trying to do the breakfast thing more often. When there is something like this delicious granola to look forward to, it’s certainly made the transition a lot easier.

Chocolate. Dried tart cherries. Sweet toasted coconut. I think the ground flaxseed really adds a depth of flavor and texture as well. It was great on yogurt, with milk as a cereal, and just by the handful for snacking. It made a HUGE batch, but none went to waste. If you have a smaller crowd, I’d suggest halving the recipe. This was my first time making granola, and it’s something I’m looking forward to making again already.

    Yum! Granola is so delicious, and I even got my dad to like it, and my dad is a person who doesn’t quite like eating “American” foods (but he’ll accept a hamburger).
    I can never make a whole batch of granola, in fear that I’d eat a whole 6 cups in 3 days! (oh, and trust me, that is completely possible!)
