Store-bought granola often packs a lot of fat and calories. Making your own healthier version is a smart way to amp up the nutrients. Remember that when it comes to granola, portion control is important, no matter how healthy the ingredients.

Here are some granola recipes to get the snacking inspiration flowing.
