We’d like to share our simple, granola recipe that we love pairing with yogurt.
Maxwell’s Granola Recipe
Preheat oven to 350º.
Heat on the stove just to boiling:
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup honey
Add 1 tablespoon vanilla after butter and honey starts to boil.
While butter and honey are heating, mix in a big bowl:
6 cups Rice Krispies (we use the off-brand ones from Aldi)
5 cups rolled oats
3 tablespoons cinnamon
Add the butter/honey mixture to the dry ingredients and stir well.
Divide into two cookie sheets with sides. We use a pan liner on our cookie sheets.
Bake at 350º for 20 or so minutes until it’s looking a little brown. We usually stir at 10 minutes and switch the pans from top to bottom.
Remove from oven and stir granola in each pan.
Turn oven down to 250º, return pans to oven, and bake until granola reaches desired level of crispness, usually 20 to 30 more minutes. We take ours out to stir and swap the pans top to bottom every 10 minutes.
There are many other things you can add to granola, but our girls enjoy this plain version.

things, which is the head, even Christ” (Ephesians 4:15).
