7th Times a Charm Granola

Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset
In less than five days, I will be officially graduating from pastry school. It’s bittersweet, but I have a strong feeling that this is only the beginning. There were good days and bad days, boil overs, fires, flops and also some pretty magnificent pastries. This recipe for granola is a reminder that persistence is key. There will be hard days where it may be tempting to give up, but if at first you don’t succeed (and then fail five more times), try, try again.
