Much better! Now lets not kid ourselves, store bought granola has that special something that I like to call, “the cluster factor”.

Well ladies and gentleman I have fixed my problem, I made a granola that has the perfect clustering factor. Its quite simple really, so come along with me and lets make this granola.
