Those who cannot eat regular oatmeal buy granola. It has a sweet taste, crunches nicely, and goes well with milk or yogurt. It can easily be called a real dessert. But if we are talking about store-bought granola, it is very important to choose a quality product, because it is not easy to recognize what kind of nuts and fruits are in it and whether they are fresh at all. Alternatively, you can use a very budget option and make granola yourself.

The idea of making homemade fruit granola was published on the Instagram page of food blogger Yevhenia Karpiuk.
