I don't know what it was but right before I had Olive I craved this granola. Made it in batches and took a bag with me to the hospital! Since then it's had a special place in my heart. When Lily had her sweet little nugget I started making it in batches again to hand off for a midnight nursing snack! It's too good not to share, enjoy sweet friends!
