Eating Granola

Eating granola reminds me of my Grandma and Grandpa. But so does coffee, grape nuts, peanut butter on english muffins with butter, sprinklers in the summer and Christmas time. Actually, who am I kidding a lot of things remind me of my grandma Ann and grandpa Jim. But today I share with you some granola I whipped up the other day. It tastes great alone, on chia seed pudding or on yogurt with some fruit. Feel free to add or take away anything you like or don’t like.
