Ever bought granola from the supermarket and asked yourself, why in the world are they so damn expensive? Me too! At one point in my shopping life, I told myself this impulse buying of granola has to stop, so I gave myself the task of finding out what I needed to recreate a recipe that will sort me out for good. After a couple of trials, I re-created the perfect recipe that I don’t mind sharing with you.

But first, find the ingredients below. Remember, nothing is cast on stone, the world should be your oyster.
