Featured Recipes

Quick Stovetop Granola
Quick Stovetop Granola

This granola recipe comes together quickly on your stovetop. By making it yourself, you control the amount of sugar and the mix-ins. Try using coconut oil, olive oil, or butter in place of canola oil. Almonds, cashews, walnuts, pepitas, or sunflower seeds can be used instead of pecans, and the cherries can be swapped out for other dried fruits such as raisins or cranberries.

Strawberry Frozen Yogurt Bars

Like all the recipes in this episode, go ahead and experiment with adding your own toppings and fruit.

    I used to be a Pampered Chef consultant, but haven’t been one in 15 years. I love this video on the chips, granola, trail mix, and yogurt bars! My adult son is still living at home while he finishes college, and I love having these ideas for snacks, as is seems he’s always hungry. Thanks, so much!
