Walnut Granola

If you love gra­nola and have been told to stay away from the sug­ar and fat laden ver­sions of it, this recipe is for you.  This gra­nola recipe has less sug­ar, oil and salt than most store bought ver­sions and it still tastes great.  You can’t com­plete­ly leave out the oil  oth­er­wise it won’t be crunchy.  It’s become a sta­ple in our home.  My daugh­ter takes it to...
