Lovely!! Wonderful this time of year! (See my notes for making this low-sugar, if you prefer that.)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This granola recipe is fantastic! It's got all the flavors of fall you love. There are hints of maple and cinnamon in this granola. Sweet, salty, and crunchy, this will be a great afternoon snack. It would also be a great topping for yogurt or ice cream. Or, eat it like cereal with some milk. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
