    LuuvBunny's Note:

    This is from the December 2009 edition of Chatelaine magazine.It is a very versatile recipe as you can change the ingredients to your liking. It says to add the flax seed at the end but I put it in before I bake it,either way is fine.I omitted the salt and added vanilla extract along with the almond extract.I usually half this recipe and make 4 cups instead of 8.I use a combination of sunflower seeds,almonds and walnuts.

      This recipe gave me some great tasting granola, & although I halved it, another time I'd want to make the whole batch &, as you indicated, freeze some for later use! I did include both raisins & cranberries, but then I'm a big fan of both! Also used honey instead of the syrup, & did a combo of seeds & nuts! Worked well for me ~ Thanks for sharing the recipe!
