I’ve already established how much I love peaches. As the season comes to a close (boohoo!), my friend Maia is back with the perfect to make good use of the final crop. This recipe for homemade peach granola is going on my must-make list this week. You better get your cook on before it’s too late!
I eat granola for breakfast almost every morning. I make large batches of my favorite granola recipe that I learned from my mom and then I change it up slightly by adding different toppings like fresh fruit or flavored yogurt. This particular iteration, in my opinion, would be just as enjoyable as a dessert as it is for breakfast.
