Sweet Advice
  • Use the parchment sheet and gently bend to make a fold to easily pour the oats back into the pan.
  • Make candied pistachios along with the almonds and save some of each to add to popcorn or pretzels.
  • Make easy to grab n’ go snack packs by filling small clear plastic bags with the granola mix. Create specialized headers to promote school events or for a team snack! (approximately 1/2 cup granola per bag).
