When I was planning on moving Hizzoner's to a new location I hired Will Annett as my head chef.  He brought Galbreath Mountain Granolawith him his own granola recipe and our customers thought it was the best granola ever.   I have to give kudos to Will for bringing us this great version of granola.   I modified the recipe a bit, and you can add or subtract ingredients, use different nuts or fruit, whatever makes you happy.

If you are eating more primal or paleo, add more and different kinds of seeds to this granola recipe.  You can leave out the brown sugar if you are really strict but it is a small amount for a large recipe.  I have been making this granola with more seeds than oats and it's fabulous.   I add pumpkin seeds and chia seeds to the mix as well.

  If your family is a big granola loving family, double this recipe.  It won't stay around long!!
