Homemade granola is incredibly easy to make. This was made with steel cut oat groats (whatever they are!) and flattened pressed rice instead of rolled oats. (I misread the label on the oats)

Store granola in jar(s) after it has cooled. Try not to eat all of it in one sitting....

The steel cut oats I got turned out to be oat groats rather than rolled oats. So I added some flattened rice to the granola as well - so there would be some flakes in the final granola. (We had the flattened rice for making Poha from A Memoir with Recipes by Shoba Narayan.)

Add dried fruits when serving. (This way the granola in the jar stays crispy.) Here is a bowl with raisins, dried cranberries and pepitas added.

Granola mixed with dried fruits, pepitas, store-bought "Ancient Grains" cereal and yoghurt is great. With homemade yoghurt, it's even better!
