Hella Good Granola

This granola is HELLA GOOD.

I have come a long way with my homemade granola…check out my other granola recipe from 3 years ago!! I’m so damn excited to share this recipe with you all, it’s perfect!

Few things about the recipe:
• Making dehydrated blueberries in the oven sounds super involved but I promise it’s worth it. Just be sure you make this way ahead of time since it bakes for 3 hours.
• You do not have to use the same kinds of nuts I did, use your favorites – experiment with the recipe!
• You must do a combo of slightly ground up oats and old fashioned oats, this is key for the clusters that form.
