reginald. your recipe sounds great, but may i give a suggestion? add a protein powder(either whey or soy) to up the protein. it doesn't alter the flavor all that much. thanks for the recipe...

You are absolutely correct. Vanilla flavored whey powder goes great with the Christmas Granola!

Great recipe!

I've been using maple and dates together for a long time in our hot breakfasts. My son just adores it on a cold winter morning before we walk to school. I love the flavors.

Another really great way to up the protein is to use quinoa instead of oatmeal. It works really well and gives you all of your aminos.
