i checked out the recipes at and reduced a few of them to the one i am about to share with you.  my son woke up from his nap a bit early today, so he helped me with the preparation!

dry ingredients
10 C rolled oats
2 C walnuts (as large or as fine as you wish)
1 C flax
1 C oat bran
1 C raw sunflower seeds
1.5 tsp sea salt

wet ingredients + cinnamon
1/2 C olive oil
1 C local honey
1/2 C maple syrup
1 tbsp ground cinnamon
1 tbsp vanilla extract


  1. combine all dry ingredients together in a large bowl, and mix thoroughly
  2. preheat oven to 325 F
  3. combine all wet ingredients together in a sauce pan, and heat on medium heat, mixing until everything is well mixed
  4. add the wet mixture to the dry mixture, and mix thoroughly in the large bowl
  5. spray two large baking sheets (with edges) with olive oil
  6. divide contents of bowl between the two sheets
  7. bake for 15-20 minutes      
  8. remove from oven and let cool 15 minutes or so
  9. leave chunky or break it up 
  10. it fits nicely into a tupperware "super cereal storer" 20 C volume container
we eat granola with yogurt, or simply as "cereal" with cold milk.  however you choose to eat yours, i hope you'll enjoy!!

*pardon the strange numbering with the pictures - there is a new posting configuration in blogger, and i am still figuring things out.
