Granola Cereal Recipe

Granola Cereal RecipeGranola can be expensive to buy in the grocery store, but is surprisingly easy and cheap to make at home. All you really need are some good quality old-fashioned oats, wheat germ, brown sugar and maple syrup. You can customize the granola to your own tastes, adding raisins if you wish, or any other type of dried fruit or nut that you desire. Granola stores easily and is very easy to carry about with you when you're out hiking.
