Do it yourself: Granola!

I don't know about you, but I can't start my day without having breakfast. I love mixing greek yogurt and berries with this homemade granola. Try it and tell us what you think!

Serves 4-6

4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
1 cup coarsely chopped almonds
3/4 cup honey
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter

Heat oven to 320 degrees.

Place the butter and honey in a small saucepan over low heat and stir until the butter is melted. Place the oatsand nuts in a large bowl, pour over 1/2 the butter mixture and toss well to combine. Spread evenly over the base of a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Stir, pour the remaining half of your butter mixture over the granola and bake for a further 5?10 minutes or until crisp and golden. Allow to cool and stir through additional items likeraisinscranberriespumpkin seeds or pistachios. Store in an airtight container.
