The fun of homemade granola is that you can make it as simple or complex as you wish. In lieu of this month's theme and National Nut Day, we definitely went with a more nutty variety including roasted almonds, roasted cashews and pumpkin seeds. Combined with whole grain oats, dark chocolate morsels, sweetened coconut and dried tart cherries, this granola makes for a delightful pairing with yogurt, milk, or even by itself. Enjoy, and be sure to check out the rest of The Recipe Redux gallery below!
