Recipe For Homemade Granola Cereal


When I was pregnant with Princess Pat, I fell in love with Nature’s Path Pumpkin Flax Granola cereal. I could have eaten that stuff every morning and never gotten sick of it. It was expensive, though, so I only ate it when I was feeling splurgy (I may have made that word up). A few months ago, I tried it again and darn it, if they hadn’t changed the recipe slightly and put way less cereal in the package. I had to come up with my own version.
