We just returned from an amazing three days at Yosemite’s Ahwahnee Hotel, a world-famous historic landmark known for its rustic architecture and timeless style.

While we were staying at The Ahwahnee, we enjoyed some of the best food in Yosemite, expertly prepared by Chef Percy Whatley. Their Cheddar-Ale Soup was simply amazing, as was their delicious dried fruit and nut granola, which was served atop Greek yogurt in The Ahwahnee Bar each morning.

Following is their granola recipe, so you can enjoy a little bit of Yosemite at home.
