I always forget how good homemade granola is until I make a fresh batch. Even though it’s incredibly easy to make, and adapt to what you have on hand, I tend to go long periods of time between batches.

So here I am again reveling in the joy of homemade granola, this time flavored as an ode to oatmeal raisin cookies!

People hate on this cookie a lot but I think it’s one of my favorites, so I seriously love feeling like I am eating cookie bits for breakfast. I even added some toasted walnuts and coconut in there for added flavor. Optional but tasty.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Granola Yogurt Parfait

My blueberry bushes are ripening as fast as I can eat them so it seemed appropriate to enjoy my fresh homemade granola on top of said blueberries and vanilla Greek yogurt. I even used a pretty cup for the occasion.

I eat breakfasts like this fairly regularly (minus the fancy cup) on the weekdays for a quick option that doesn’t require cooking anything. But you could also use this to jazz up a really pretty fruit parfait to serve at brunch too! Love when something can serve as breakfast and dessert.

Or you could just eat it straight, because it’s that good.

Yum! I’m a big fan of oatmeal raisin cookies, so this granola sounds great (though a little sweeter than I like). I always make my own granola – always have regular and chocolate. I envy you the blueberry bushes, which I’m sure would not do well here. Blueberries, Greek yogurt and granola for me is the ultimate breakfast.

You can definitely tone down the sugar
