Granola:  Three Ways

For me, eating granola is second nature.  I’ve realized, though, that to some people eating granola is a new experience or, for many of us, eating granola with yogurt can become boring.  In the spirit of my favorite chefs preparing one ingredient “three ways,” I’ve compiled my three favorite ways in which to eat granola.  I’ve also included my favorite granola and yogurt combinations to give everyone some new inspiration.  I spend a lot of time trying out different yogurt flavors with my granola so I figured I should pass my favorites on to you!
