Stomach bugs, blech. They hit out of nowhere and I am convinced the germs somehow know when supplies run low at our house – illness seems to target us when the fridge is empty and the pantry is bare.

My little guy succumbed to a nasty bug the other evening, and I rummaged through what was left in the cupboards for the last few bottles of ginger ale and crackers. But I also realized that we were completely out of granola. We can’t go a day without granola, so I knew I had to remedy that, stat.

Granola is one of those basics – we go through cupfuls at a time, and I am always amazed at how expensive such a simple thing can be. Gourmet granola is pricey, but thank goodness it is so easy to make homemade granola that is just as good.

Blueberry Maple Granola combines my love for maple sweetened granola with dried blueberries – for me, it’s a must over my daily yogurt for breakfast, with a drizzle of honey and more fresh blueberries. My son loves it swimming in milk, and he ate a big bowl as soon as he was feeling more himself. I pack it in my husband’s lunches for his yogurt at the office. And we can’t forget how it adds crunch to a scoop of ice cream.

Take that, stomach bugs. You can’t stop us. We may not have food in the fridge, but we’ll at least have granola.

      Hi Drisdy! I haven’t tried making it with steel cut oats, and I imagine the texture would be quite different, but now I am intrigued and will try to give it a shot.  As for the sweetener, yes, you can totally use agave nectar! And honey works well, too!

    I’d happily  eat this granola for breakfast, lunch and dinner! I always add dried fruit and mixing with fresh blueberries and yogurt sounds terrific!

    What is a good substitute for the canola oil? Could I use melted butter?
