Nutritious, heart-healthy, homemade Vanilla Toasted Almond Granola that is sweet-salty-crunchy and out of this world delicious.
Flavors of vanilla and coconut are front and center in this granola and the toasting of the oats and almonds brings even more great flavor and lots of crunch. This granola has that irresistible sweet/salty/crunchy thing going on. The chewy, intensely-flavored, sweet and tart dried cherries are the perfect counterpoint for the toasted crunchiness of everything else.
By the way. If you've never cooked with cardamom, it's a wonderful spice that adds a lovely aromatic note to baked goods.
