Cook's Tips:

Serve it as a breakfast cereal, snack, or topping for yogurt or fresh fruit. Or, try a “smoothie breakfast bowl,” a fruit-packed smoothie topped with granola!
Change the flavor of your granola!
Try using coconut oil, olive oil, or butter in place of canola oil.
Instead of pecans, use almonds, cashews, walnuts, pepitas, or sunflower seeds.
Dried cherries can be swapped for your favorite dried fruit like raisins or cranberries.
