Breakfast Fruit and Nut Granola

 
Breakfast Fruit and Nut Granola

Love the almonds, pecans, and pumpkin seeds in my granola, and this recipe has its all. Plus maple syrup is my favourite go-to sweeter as well. I usually use dried apricots and mangos instead of raisins. Serve it with plain yogurt and fresh berries if they are seasonal. So yummy!

I love make my own granola, because I can add whatever dried fruits and nuts I like, and I can also control the amount of sugar and fat that are added in. This is one of my favourite homemade granola recipes.
