Finally, some granola.

Last weekend I made a big batch of my favorite granola to fuel me through finals week. Making your own granola is awesome because you get to put exactly what you want in it, and only what you want. I think this particular recipe is the perfect balance of sweet and salty. I load mine with nuts and seeds and NO dried fruit, especially NO raisins. Just my personal preference. Try and make your own. Go crazy with it! Making your personal, signature, granola come with a surprising sense of satisfaction. 

My favorite recipe was adapted from Nekisia Davis's Early Bird Granola. It's super fresh and addictive! If eating granola is your thing, but making it isn't, you can order some here. I make mine with a little less sugar, add a few more nuts, and some flax seeds for a nice omega-3 and omega-6 balance.  See the recipe after the jump.
