Man, I love homemade granola. Sometimes I forget how much. These days I usually start my day with a green smoothie or juice rather than a bowl of cereal. But honestly, by mid-morning I’m in need of a snack and this tropical granola kind of hits the spot in a way nothing else can.
I’ve been making my own for several years now and I love doing it because I am able to control what I put into it and how much. And the possibilities are endless. So many combinations, so little time! It can also be hard to find really good gluten-free granola. This tropical granola sort of came together one day as I was going through my baking cupboard. That’s the same cupboard that houses all the dried fruit and nuts I keep stocked away. I started pulling out bags of this and that and thought, “Gee, this would make a kickin’ granola.” And it did, friends. It really did.
