Lately I've been having this urge to make my own granola. Then after we had those great Acai bowls I just had to do it. I used Cathe Olson's recipe called Millet Crunch Granola. Ummm, if you can't tell from the picture, mine has no millet. But next time it will. I just didn't have any.

I love that this recipe has tahini in it. No one in my house likes it plain and I just love running across recipes that sneak it in. This recipe is also unique in that it uses agave nectar in loo of maple syrup. I've read that agave nectar doesn't cause the sugar spike that many other sweeteners do.

I add chopped dry apple and some dried cranberries. Next time I might try some cinnamon and just apples. I didn't have pepitas so I used slivered almonds. This recipe really is very adaptable. I imagine most granola recipes are really just jumping off points.

If you like cereal, muesli, or of course granola, give this recipe a shot.
You have to scroll down to see it.

Looks really good. We go through a LOT of granola around here, so I really should just start making it. Hmmm... now I may just be inspired.
