Happy first day of spring!
There are so many things that I love about this season, but, to me, one of the best things is all about the blooming and re-birth of flowers, trees, and nature, in general.
Of course, the beautiful weather, Easter, and my youngest little being born in spring are all reasons that I love the season, too.
And, another thing….the fruit. I love berries, and they are so fresh, beautiful, and sweet during the spring.
That is what inspired me to make this granola yesterday. After researching many recipes, I created my own with all of the flavors that I thought would create the perfect granola. My littles like things simple, so I just wanted plain ‘ole granola that we could eat by the handful. Adding some fruit and granola to yogurt or ice cream is just another way to get in an extra serving of fruit for the day, and it is the perfect after school snack. It turned out just like I had hoped that it would – crunchy, just a little sweet, and clustered….perfect for a beautiful, spring day.
