This granola recipe is very versatile. You can add vanilla protein powder for extra protein, and any other additions that you prefer. Some great additions are raisins, craisins, chopped dates, cashew pieces, sunflower seeds, pepitas, chia seeds, etc. Wait to add dried fruit until the granola is cooled.
I use flaxseed meal, but you can use the seeds if you prefer.
This recipe makes about 4 1/2 qt. I store mine in an ice cream bucket.
