How to make your own Granola

How to make your own Granola

Making my own cereal was never a big deal for me since my grandma, Sybil made her own and taught me how to do it. We called it Sybil Cereal, and it’s still a staple at our house. So when I came across this granola recipe with two of my favourite things, coconut and maple syrup, I couldn’t resist trying it. It’s become a new staple in my breakfast rotation!

The beautiful thing about granola (and cereal) recipes is that they’re super adaptable. Don’t like sunflower seeds? Use a seed you do like! Don’t like raisins? What about dried apricots? Don’t like coconut? We can’t be friends anymore.

Combine maple syrup, oil and salt in a separate bowl. I usually just use a measuring cup, since it’s easier to pour with than a bowl.
