Cooking Light's Almond Granola (tweeked)

Submitted by: BRANLAADEE1

Introduction

Got this from the Dec. 2007 Cooking Light magazine. I have added in the seeds, flax and changed the nuts to pistachios instead of pecans. Got this from the Dec. 2007 Cooking Light magazine. I have added in the seeds, flax and changed the nuts to pistachios instead of pecans.
