In the past year three blogging friends have given
me homemade granola.  I have become addicted to these wonderful
mixtures of yumminess.  Last year I started making our yogurt
and the granola was a wonderful addition.
Since I didn't think bloggers would continue supplying me with granola,
it was time to make it myself.
There is a cherry tree in our yard and I had dried cherries from the tree.
Granola would be a perfect way to use the cherries too.
Recently I found a recipe that included dried cherries at Tartelette
and I knew it was time to give it a try.  It was so easy.
Now why have I not made granola before?
Now beside this recipe, I will be trying other combination's too.

You can find the recipe here:

Enjoy!  I certainly am.

I have never made my own granola either. It does look totally easy and the recipe has everything that I like...the coconuts and cherries make me smile!

Hello Marilyn,

Your granola looks yummy! I have never made my own and as much as I love it I should!:o) A cherry tree in the yard, oh how wish we were neighbors.:o)

Continue to enjoy a lovely week.

Granola is a great way to share love! As a vegetarian teen in the 60's, granola was something we made in huge batches! It was hard and very crunchy! Over time I learned what I think is the secret of good granola: use more seeds than nuts. So good. Now days I make granola in a skillet. It's probably a lazy way, but I like how it turns out.

I love your new header!

I need to start making my own again too - that way there's less of the bad things such as sugar and fat!

Thanks for this -- I've toyed with making homemade granola for a rather long while. Seems like it would be so delicious! I'll check this one out -- I think I have everything but the coconut in my pantry! It might be a wonderful weekend thing!

I really like granola and eat it every night (loaded with fresh fruit) as my snack. Cascadian Farm organic fruit and nut granola is very good - of course, you can't beat homemade.
