My husband enjoys the fresh homemade granola that I’ve been making regularly for several years. Normally, I make granola with honey, although I’ve tried agave, too. Recently, while experimenting with sweetener alternatives, I came up with a brown sugar and molasses syrup. This combination is a much richer flavor than straight honey or agave.

We eat very little sugar. The only thing I use white sugar for is making yummy kombucha and brown sugar is usually reserved for our delightful breakfast porridge. I make our granola plain without adding any fruits or nuts in the cooking process. This allows us to customize our own breakfasts at the table to what each of us feels like adding.
