Today I have a super yummy and easy recipe to share with you. My mom makes homemade granola all the time and it is one of my faves. Every time I visit she sends me with a bag to take home. She’s always taking care of me. Yesterday I had to get a little surgery (bone grafting / implant) done and she nursed me all day. Everything went great. I was just a little out of it all day from the anesthesia. My mom brought me smoothies/ice packs and insisted I take a nap. I snuggled up with my son in bed and we took a 2 hour nap. It was heavenly. I love that my mom still treats me like her little girl when I’m sick. Aren’t mom’s the best?!

{ Homemade Granola }

This homemade granola is pretty easy to make and is great served on yogurt with fresh cut strawberries. It definitely beats my typical “cereal” breakfast. This also makes a great little snack as well. Top with cool whip and you’ve got yourself a nice little treat.
