Griddle Granola

We like to incorporate granola into various dishes at The Griddle. You may have seen some of our granola specials on Facebook or Twitter (@thegriddle1). We have granola hotcakes, granola waffles, granola and yogurt, and sometimes as a topping to another dish. So today we are going to teach you how to make the one common ingredient to all those dishes, granola!

The one thing about granola is you can make it how you like. If you like certain nuts than add those into your recipe. This is the instructions for how to make our classic granola. We would love for you to share which ingredients you add to make your granola one of a kind, share them with us on Twitter @thegriddle1 or
