I've always enjoyed yogurt with granola on top, but for the past few months, it has almost become an addiction! Every morning, almost without fail, I make myself a little yogurt parfait for breakfast. I've always just used store-bought granola, but making the Cherry Almond Granola from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book was so easy--and the results were so delicious--that I think I might have to start making granola from scratch all the time! The almonds and dried cherries are the stars of the show, with the former contributing a warm, nutty crunch and the latter, a bright, fresh pop of flavor. But the thing I like best about this from-scratch granola is that I know exactly what's in it, and I can easily change it to suit any whim. Different fruits, different nuts, different spices. I can't wait to try more combinations!
