Yum Yum Yummy! I was sick of my old granola recipe (which was good, but it's been 2 years of the same thing!). I tried this and it's delicious! Though, because I'm health conscious, I did alter things a bit: I added 1 C. ground flaxseeds, halved the sunflowers seeds and added 1/2 cup of crushed pumpkin seeds, used only almonds for the nuts (not a big fan of pecans or walnuts), only used 2 T. of brown sugar, and instead of vegetable oil, I used coconut oil (I HIGHLY recommend using this - the health benefits are incredible and the flavor is outstanding! - even if you don't like coconut). I used 1 C. raisins and 1 C. dried cranberries. I also used all-natural ingredients. This is fabulous atop organic yogurt finished with fresh fruit :) Thank you for sharing :)
*ALSO, if you want your granola a little sweeter, a good alternative is to add in some agave nectar to the liquid mix...incredible!
