Easy Family Recipes: Almond Crunch Granola

granola flexedGetting your kids to eat breakfast can be such a chore. They’re essentially living food vacuums, yet I struggle every single day to get something good in their bellies in the morning. Luckily, I’ve recently discovered that my daughter Anna absolutely loves granola.

I thought I’d just pick some up, but have you seen how expensive it is to buy in the grocery store? Yowsa! It’s a good thing that granola is a snap to make, and to customize to your family’s taste-buds with almost no effort at all.

Essentially, throw a bunch of yummy things in a bowl, stir them together, bake for a bit, and you’ve got granola for the week. Just be sure to store in an airtight container so that summer humidity doesn’t soften it.
