Crunchy Granola

recipe
For those who have a higher carb allowance, here's a whole-grain granola to eat for breakfast or snacks. This recipe is comparable to some of the commercial granolas on the market, but still lower in carbs than a few of the brands. Sometimes it's easier just to make your own rather than search for the brands with the least amount of sugar and the most fiber.
