If you’re a tea lover and enjoy a good bowl of homemade granola, this is an easy and fragrant recipe you’ll want to try.
Rather than drink my tea, I wanted to try using it to infuse other ingredients and make this amazing, unique granola. Slightly sweet and crunchy, just the way I love it, this is perfect when served over a bowl of fresh fruit such as peaches or ripe berries.
Or get creative, and use it to make breakfast parfaits by layering the granola with fruit and Greek yogurt.
Your granola will keep for up to a week in an airtight container and is even perfect for gift giving when placed in a decorative container or jar with a pretty bow.
