Homemade Granola Recipe

1/2 cup melted butter* (If you’re looking for something healthier I suggest doing an oil such as avocado or olive)

1/2 cup brown sugar* (Again a healthier alternative could be honey or pure maple syrup)

3 cups oats (I used old fashioned oats)

Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl and stir until evenly coated. At this point you can add in dried fruits. I will add chocolate chips to the one for Lizzy but obviously those won’t be added until later. PREHEAT the oven to 375 and bake for 12 minutes. I opened the oven and stirred them around even three minutes so that they didn’t burn. Allow them to cool for about 10ish minutes.

To make into a parfait:

 Layer vanilla yogurt, fresh strawberries, and the granola and there you go in less than 20 minutes you have a wonderful homemade breakfast with granola to spare for the next few days.
