Jessica’s crunchy and delicious homemade granola

California Cooking

Buying granola at the grocery store can be expensive, and Jessica figured it can’t be too hard to make at home.

She experimented with making her own using nuts, seeds and dried fruits she had at home.

The final product was crunchy and delicious, and Levi liked it so much he said he would eat it for breakfast!
