A couple of days ago I posted my Peaches and Cream Parfait and this is the awesome granola I used for it. I’m a HUGE granola fan. Like huge. I haven’t made any new recipes for a while because we love the old recipes so much. Pretty much my Honey Almond Granola Recipe makes an appearance at least once a week in our kitchen and the batch lasts us almost the entire week. We took it camping with us when we went at the first of August and the friends that tasted it loved it too!

I figured it would be nice to make a new variety to add to our rotation. I wanted something a little more hearty yet still delicious. I’m a huge parfait fan and love sprinkling it onto yogurt with some fresh sliced fruit. Already this week that’s what I’ve grabbed on the go for breakfast as I headed out to work each morning. What I love is how easy this is to make on Sunday night and have ready for all week long (if it lasts that long). It’s tasty enough just to grab a handful and much on for a quick healthy snack and pick me up. If there’s anything I’ve learned, it’s preparation is key – so as much as I can have prepped in advance the more successful I will be! Let me know if you make this and tell me what you think!
