Recipe by WI Cheesehead
Got this from a nutritionist friend of mine. It has flax seed, and walnuts are good for you - the only nut that has omega 3's. Sometimes I'll also add a cup of sunflower seeds. My daughter loves it and a 8 yo friend was over and tried it. His comment: "This is tasty!" I gave the recipe to his mom and she made it for a school function and it was a hit! I use rolled oats, but you could use quick oats too. I use this on top of fruit and yogurt for a healthy breakfast.

My family loved this recipe. The only way we get to have granola is to make it at home because it isn't available here. Therefore, a good recipe is imperative. That fact that I searched until i found it again is testimony that it is a winner. We are even doubling the recipe this time. Thanks for a great taking granola recipe WI Cheesehead.
