Vanilla Cinnamon Granola

Vanilla Cinnamon Granola

When I need a healthy sweet snack I often reach for a handful of granola and my kids follow suit. Even my toddler points and say “Nola, nola”.
You can sub out for different types of nuts or dried fruits. In a nice jar with a label or a cellophane bag and this makes a great hostess give or brunch party favor. Its easy to double the batch cause it will be gone in no time.
