My old granola recipes just got a facelift from a new secret ingredient: milk powder! I had tried milk powder in my granola before but didn’t notice any standout changes.

Nothing smells better than homemade granola baking in the oven. I dare say it is even better than cookies! Here is the basic formula for creating your own special blend. It might look like a big list of ingredients to choose from, but you can make great granola from only three ingredients: oats, honey, and butter. However, nuts and seeds add nutrients and flavor.
