Apricot, Almond and Pecan Granola (3 Step Granola)

I am ill with a cold, but luckily haven’t had any time off work ill since the end of February. I’ll take small victories where I can. I generally have stomach issues, colds I get about once a year, so hopefully this is all I will have to put up with in 2018. I have […]
