Our guests just can not get enough of this granola. It works wonderfully in parfaits for a refreshing breakfast treat. Top with fresh Huckleberries or any dark berry when serving to add a great flavor pop. After starting their mornings with this tasty, healthy breakfast our guests were ready to tackle the adventures of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
