    I’m with you, Nicole! I’m ready for Fall… cool walks, short days, the color of Fall in all it’s beauty.. and sippin on hot Latte’s to stay warm… all YES! I love granola year round, so the flavors you’ve incorporated here are just what I crave. Your styling is beautiful, for sure and the yogurt and berries provide a nice contrast to the granola. Beautiful and thank you for your styling notes. I always learn something new from you!

    Stunning, really it’s almost too pretty to scoop up! I also love your cardamom addition!

    Yogurt, granola (homemade nonetheless!) and fruit are a great trio of taste and textures. One of my favorite evening snacks. :)

      Thank you, Kevin! It did make a great snack indeed. I loved the cardamom too and I have a feeling that I have only scratched the surface of this beautiful spice, I’m going to have to experiment much more with it. :)

    Oh! This granola looks soooo divine! I could totally dig into a big bowl of this, right now! The addition of all of those different spices looks so flavorful, and I definitely need to try this soon! Thanks for sharing, Nicole! :D

    Oh wow. This is how to make granola gourmet! I love it. I would totally grab spoonfuls of it too, straight out of the jar! Easy to do with homemade granola, never do it with store bought (well, I never buy granola!) :)

    • Nicole B. says:

      Ooooh, gourmet granola, that’s what I should have named this. Would also be a good blog name, The Granola Gourmet. :)

      Thank you so much, Mary Ann! This granola does make a good snack indeed, I kept grabbing a spoonful every time I went past the bowl. Hope you’re having a great weekend. :)
