Granola with Cardamom and Pistachios

January 21

I’m in granola heaven. I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to try and track down this recipe. I have been reading the blog A Sweet Spoonful for quite some time now and the author has branched out and started a granola company called Marge, so I always suspected her granola is quite good (she does sell it after all!). Luckily, she recently came out with a book and recipes from the book are littered around the blogosphere. While a number of them look very appetizing, the first thing that I tracked down was this granola recipe, it was a long time coming. I am very pleased that I did because my home has been noticeably granola-lacking the past few months. I don’t know why I haven’t made it in so long, I think I have just been sticking with granola bars as handy lunch-time snacks as opposed to granola, which is more of a delicious, breakfast add-in.

Most of the people I was serving don’t really like eating sweets so I thought that yogurt, fruit and granola was a healthy, sweet alternative.
