"This is my top recipe on another site, received from a nutritionist friend. 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."

What can we say about this granola. First I have to say it is one of the greatest things to ever hit my lips. Second you will feel the same if you make it! It's so amazing for breakfast and snacks too. We have it all the time and we can't keep our hands out of the bowl. I store it in the fridge and won't be without this in my fridge!

Best cereal I have EVER had! This is as good as candy! So delicious as cereal with milk, or as as snack to pop into your mouth! Lasts a long time in the fridge.

I keep forgetting to review this one, but I have been making it for a long time now and it far surpasses any you could buy in the store. We can't wait to have it when there is a fresh batch in the refrigerator!

This is crazy delicious Granola, which is great for a cereal in the morning, but I also love it for a snack to munch on during the day. It is so good, you will be heading to the fridge, which is where I store it, to grab a handful often. The ingredients are mostly healthy and it gives you lots of energy to boot!

MY wife and daughter made this and its the best granola. The kids went crazy for it and now ask for it for breakfast all the time. When the batch gets low we fight over it!
