Sweet Melissa Rewind: Cherry Almond Granola

I’ve always enjoyed yogurt with granola on top, but for the past few months, it has almost become an addiction! Every morning, almost without fail, I make myself a little yogurt parfait for breakfast. I’ve always just used store-bought granola, but making the Cherry Almond Granola from The Sweet Melissa Baking Book was so easy–and the results were so delicious–that I think I might have to start making granola from scratch all the time! The almonds and dried cherries are the stars of the show, with the former contributing a warm, nutty crunch and the latter, a bright, fresh pop of flavor. But the thing I like best about this from-scratch granola is that I know exactly what’s in it, and I can easily change it to suit any whim. Different fruits, different nuts, different spices. I can’t wait to try more combinations!

Thanks to Wendy of Pink Stripes for choosing this recipe way back when. You can find the complete recipe on her blog by clicking HERE.

  1. I can totally relate on the granola addiction. I missed the week we made granola and I am thinking I will have to give it a try. Your pictures are wonderful!

  2. I made a tropical granola, which I ate mindlessly and ravenously as I was reading a newspaper, and it disappeared so fast…

    No one else in the family likes coconut, so that batch is all mine; it seems the next batch will be cherry almond!

    Your yogurt parfait idea is fab.
