LARSON FAMILY GRANOLA RECIPE
Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I posted this photo on instagram last week and was surprised at how many people were interested in having me share the recipe to this granola!  It’s a family recipe, passed down to me from my mother-in-law.  Every year when Sam and I go to visit his mom and dad, either in Minnesota or Wisconsin, we devour this stuff.  I finally wised up and got the recipe to make for ourselves.  Sam’s been eating it since he was a kid, and he still asks me to make it for him!  And to be totally honest, it’s the best granola I’ve ever had too! (and I’ve tried a lot of granola! haha).  This recipe makes A TON….so it will last you a good while.   It’s made up of simple ingredients and is quick and easy to make.  And if you are constantly buying granola like we were, it’s a whole lot cheaper to make it this way!   Just pop a couple bags in the freezer and save it for when you want it.  Enjoy!
