There is nothing like homemade granola, and it is super simple to make. Cinnamon, nutmeg and orange zest adds wonderful flavor. We use various nuts but you don’t need to use them all – just pick your favorites. It keeps well in the fridge or the freezer and you can just pull out what you want any time.
