It's easy to make delicious homemade granola. This almond maple granola is packed with heart-heathy oats and almonds, dried cranberries and apricots and it's one of the best things to eat for breakfast, scooped over yogurt or in a bowl with milk.
Two old friends, that I haven't seen in years, are coming to stay with me for the weekend. The three of us were best friends starting back in the early days of our television careers, when we were all "paying our dues" at the "Good Morning America" offices in Manhattan. We were researchers and our job was to figure out and arrange all of the details for a particular story from booking the interviews to arranging travel for the producer and crew. It was challenging and busy and stressful and we had a blast. As I was thinking about this weekend and how nice it will be to have so much time to catch up with my good friends, I was inspired to make my favorite granola.
I like to almost burn the granola. It brings out the best in the oats and the nuts and gives it a great crunch. Having a fresh batch of home made granola for the weekend is always a good feeling.
