This is the third iteration of our family granola recipe, improved upon the Cranberry granola and Not-so-sweet date granola. It has a lot of nuts and dried fruits, not just dates, still not too sweet, and is more crispy than ever.

We eat it every morning with yogurt, bananas, and fresh berries (grapes in winter and strawberries or blueberries in summer, or whatever looks good and not too expensive).
