Sunday mornings have become our time to catch up on SNL - and make granola. I start prepping the batch as the show starts, and some time later, the granola is done, the house smells divine, and we've laughed enough to last the day. I came across this recipe for chai granola and was amazed at the simplicity of recreating a chai flavour. You're going to love it.
