This is so simple to make and very easy to vary according to your families likes and dislikes. Add flaked coconut instead of almonds, vary the seeds, and add whatever dried fruits and berries your family enjoy. Granola makes a healthy breakfast dish with yogurt and fresh fruit or sprinkle it over cooked fruit such as apples, plums or rhubarb for a quick desert.
