When the temperature drops, there’s nothing more heartwarming than curling up with a piping hot alcoholic beverage.

Mulled wine is a winter tradition that has stood the test of time. In fact, it’s so beloved it now has its own national holiday. No surprises here. Take one whiff of cinnamon, spice and all that’s nice and instantly evoke the best that winter has to offer. But why stop at wine? Mulling spices are our favorite addition to otherwise boring baked goods.

But, as many of you granola eaters know, breakfast oats can be quite expensive.  For example, a 12 oz package of Bear Naked (my former go-to) or one of the other gourmet brands averages out at about $7 dollars a pop. That’s a lot of cash (and sugar!) for not that much granola.
