Rice Puff Granola

This granola was very good – I used rice puffs as well as oatmeal and I liked the way it came out. Nice breakfast 🙂

Note – the amount of rice puffs and granola should total to 1 cup, so use whatever proportions you’d like.

Rice Puff Granola

Ingredients (makes about 3/4 cup of granola)
