Delicious & Nutty Not-Too-Sweet Granola

Delicious & Nutty Not-Too-Sweet Granola

Want a granola recipe that is crunchy, nutty, flavorful, and a little sweet (but not too sweet)?

This is it!

My secret is a touch of salt in addition to the honey and brown sugar, which really brings out all the flavors.
