And since Nature Valley granolas taste like from-scratch, this is an example of when skipping ahead (and going heavy on said mix-ins) is a no-brainer.
We've got three custom flavors that start with store-bought granola, then get loaded up with all the extra good stuff. Check them out, then get creative and create your own halfway homemade granola (chocolate optional, but definitely encouraged).
Crunchy Peanut Butter-Chocolate-Banana Granola
Peanut Butter, chocolate and banana always add up to a hard yes. Granola is no exception.
