Honey Nut Granola

Honey Nut Granola

On January 10, I received an email saying that January is National Oatmeal Month.  I don’t know how I had missed this!  I should have dedicated the entire month to this wonderful, warm morning treat.

I have had an abundance of oatmeal this month, but I haven’t made any new recipes since I have been at school.  I couldn’t let the entire month go by without posting an oatmeal-related recipe, so I pulled this granola recipe out of the dark recesses of my drafts folder.
