Growing up I remember if ever I was up late, I could often find my dad at the breakfast room table indulging in a bowl of granola for a “late-night-snack.”
At the time I didn’t quite understand the appeal — after all granola is technically a cereal, a breakfast food. I would have certainly gone for the chocolate chip cookies, myself.
I’ve since learned though, that not only are some of the best breakfast foods the most delicious when served for dinner, but granola is a delicious meal or snack anytime.
In a bowl with milk and fresh, sweet berries for breakfast, in the form of a bar for a snack on-the-go, or — my personal favorite — in a bowl or small bag, simply eaten out of hand.
To this day, it’s a treat when I make granola for my dad — and I’m sure he often eats it “late-night,” at the same breakfast room table.
