I don't like granola, I often find it bland, dry and boring. But this recipe, my variation on the granola recipe from Joy of Cooking, 75th anniversary edition, suits so much my taste that I often find myself eating more without even thinking about it. A delicious and easy way to add fiber, lots of nutrients and diversified fatty acids such as Omega-3 to a diet, because you can munch on it anytime that suits you. Oh, and you can modify it, if you prefer some kinds of nuts, seeds, fruit or grains. You could also, when it has cooled a little, add dark chocolate chips or carob chips. Can easily be made gluten-free by using GF flakes. Can be made vegan by using another sweetener, like agave or maple syrup. Some of the ingredients below can be hard to find in regular grocery stores, but are a common staple in health food stores.
