Cinnamon Toast Granola

Cinnamon Toast Granola

We love to eat this crunchy, sweetly spiced granola with milk or layered into yogurt with chopped fruit—but we also love giving it as a gift! Double the recipe (if you don’t have two baking sheets, you will need to bake it in batches), allow the granola to cool completely, package it in clean jars or zipper-lock bags, and add a ribbon!
