Although this recipe is called a "brittle", it really serves as a fantastic granola to top your yogurt, or snack on by itself.

One of our staff members eats this everyday with yogurt and we heard rave reviews about how great it was from everyone who had tried it. When we saw that January 21st was National Granola Day, we just had to ask for the recipe so we could share it with you. Once we got it, we were surprised at how simple it really is to make! Give it a try and let us know how you like it.
