Chunky Granola Recipe

Chunky Granola RecipeWe all know how easy it is to pick up a bag of granola at the local grocery store. But if you're the kind of person that finds yourself picking out the dried fruit in your granola because you don't care for it, or you just prefer your granola extra crunchy, sometimes the store bought stuff just doesn't cut it. Luckily, making your own granola at home is very easy and you know precisely what is going into your granola.
