This tasty granola is adapted from Fine Cooking. It is strongly almond and vanilla flavored and super crunchy! I like it with alternative milk, on top of oatmeal, or plain. My little brother and I made it together and it took us less than fifteen minutes! He announced to me that it is ‘the best granola ever!’. If you make it and change something, such as the nut butter, I would love it if you commented about how it turned out.
