  1. Made this for my DBF who loves granola... and he sure loved yours!! I think he ate the whole thing in 3 days...;). Note to self: buy pumpkin seeds without the shells... ;) Thanks Juenessa! :)
  2. 10 stars all the way for this delicious granola/muesli cereal! I used local sunflower oil and normal maple syrup, I did not have the very dark stuff! This has a wonderful taste and I have snacked on this a couple of times when I have gone into my scullery/pantry!! The only other ingredient I changed, was the pumpkin seeds - I didn't have any, other than that, this was made as stated! Thanks Annacia - FT:-)
