COMMENTS:   This is the exact granola recipe used in Fayetteville Arkansas in 1973 as a product sold in various health food outlets.  It was made in “The Way It Is Restaurant & Bakery” pizza oven that was borrowed to launch this “home business.”   Approximately 400 pounds per week was made during this short-lived adventure. Hence the large quantity recipe! 

     As with all granola’s, you need a health food grocery store that sells bulk ingredients to find the necessary components for it.  There are really no rules, so do not be deterred if you cannot add precisely all of the above listed ingredients.  Add what’s available and emphasize your favorite items.
