The combination of rolled oats, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chopped walnuts, shredded coconut, and a sprinkle of cinnamon creates a crunchy and delightful treat. Making homemade granola has become my Sunday ritual, one that I cherish and look forward to. With each carefully measured ingredient, the house slowly fills with the most heavenly aroma as the granola bakes.
