Here's my granola version using green, pumpkin seed kernels. Delicious with soy milk for breakfast or snack.

We made a half batch and used canola oil instead of coconut oil. We felt that it needed a little more flavor/sweetener for our liking. I believe this would be a great basic recipe to tweak. I may try it with adding some honey and a little more oil. I will also try it as cereal and see how it tastes and will update, if needed.
