it was less costly to make than to buy this granola in the stores, i can add what i want or take off the things i don't need.
I used this recipe in my nutrition class every year when we studied the grain group. My students liked it so much they went home to make it. When they make it at home, you know it's a great recipe. It was give to me by the Cameron County Extension agent.
