Store-bought Granola can be a minefield if you're watching your sugars. That's because of all the sugar that's added to it. This homemade Granola is crispy, crunchy, and delicious. The cinnamon adds natural sweetness, which is accentuated by the vanilla extract. Best of all, this Granola contains no added sugar, so it's good for you too. Now that's a win-win situation.
