Maple Spiced Nut Granola with Pecans, Flax Seeds, and Sunflower Seeds

Maple Spiced Nut Granola with Pecans, Flax, and Sunflower Seeds

It’s very rare that we host overnight guests at our place, but this weekend we’ll have company for a few days. Of course this got me thinking about what the heck other people like to eat at home. This granola sounded like a crowd pleaser and a perfect item for the pantry.

Even though it’s summer, and this tastes like Fall in a bowl, that’s OK because it’s so good.
