"This much like the new Pumpkin Flax Granola but our Great Grandmother used what she had on hand to make her granola. It's been a family favorite for all my life time. She use English walnuts instead of pine nut because she had them growing in with her fruit trees. I love eating 1/2 cup of this mixed in with 1 cup of my homemade vanilla yogurt for breakfast."
