Hot Date Granola is a large cluster, flavour-filled, fall breakfast, snack, and even treat. I’m sure you’ll love it as much as we all do!
The time of year when my fingers get cold and stay cold for the next 6 months, and when the sweaters come out of big boxes in the basement. And when mittens end up in the single and looking pile.
It’s also the time of year I get to break out my favourite warming spices. Cinnamon, cardamom, ginger, cloves, nutmeg, they all hit my regular rotation and work their way into most of my dishes.
This recipe is dedicated to the spices of fall.
