Bare Bones Granola

Carolyn Haas


I like to add a couple tablespoons of granola into my morning fruit and yogurt. I do not like to add extra sugar, so this works well for me. I can't vouch for how tasty it would be on it's own! PS Baking it in the oven gives a more toasted flavor to the oats, but in the interest of keeping my house cool, I opted to skip the oven! Also, it takes less cooking time on the stove-top. 1 WW point for 2 tablespoons.
