Stovetop Granola

Ruth Ann Vokac


I usually don't eat granola because it is so calorie dense. But when I saw a recipe for making it on Snack Girl, I decided to try it. The recipe didn't make a huge batch, and it was low in fats and sugar.

It is delicious! I think it will be a winner with my grandchildren.
