We are so excited that the warm weather is finally here! Once it warms up, we are so ready to get out of the house and enjoy the great outdoors. Beach trips, kayaking, bike riding, or just taking a stroll through the park or neighborhood are some of our favorite warm weather activities. Of course, we always have to pack a few snacks on our outings. If we don't, Allison turns into a total diva (you know, like one of those Snicker's commercial characters. Full. On. Diva Grouch!) I sometimes expect her to turn into Bobby Knight and whip her bike across the park when she's hungry :) Okay, she's not that bad, but packing a snack is usually in everyone's best interest when we are going to be out and about. We like things that are easy to make, nutritious and portable, so I knew that this Tropical Granola recipe was going to be one of our summertime snacking staples this year.
Sweetened with honey, cinnamon and dried pieces of tropical fruit, it's really a tasty summer treat. I have a food dehydrator, but was in a hurry on my last batch and found that Sun Maid has little bags of dried mixed tropical fruit that were perfect for whipping up this recipe quickly. Just snip up the pieces with some kitchen shears or slice with a sharp knife and you are all set!
