Granola taste good not only with milk but also natural yogurt.

Add more honey for sweeter taste and more clusters.

Choose more flaky oats for softer texture.

You can use any dried fruits, but add them at the end, they don’t need baking. I used homemade dried apples that my father sent me from his garden, tangy and delicious ;)
