Aunt Ann’s Super Awesome Granola Recipe

I LOVE granola!  The fiber keeps everything moving along in the waste department removing toxins, the protein provides energy, and the honey keeps me sweet, which is no easy job!
The summer of ’72 my junior year at Norwich Senior High, Home of the Purple Tornados, we had a school project, our assignment was to do some on the job training.  Mom grew up during the depression and I think that is why I wasn’t allowed to hold a job until I had graduated from High School.
I went to Westport Connecticut for a few weeks to work with my Aunt Ann at Paul Zabin’s fancy clothing shop doing what I could to get my feet wet in a business environment.
I had never heard of Granola until that summer.  Aunt Ann was always a bit ahead of the curve.  Here is her recipe, I have been making it on and off for almost 40 years and wanted to share the recipe with you and ask if you have a super awesome granola recipe you would like to share I would love to try it.
