Most granola is packed with lots of fat and little nutrition. This version has goodness in every bite and is low in fat. Serve with a dollop of plain yogurt and sliced fresh fruit for a healthy breakfast. The recipe can easily be doubled.

The low fat granola is good. Water should be listed as an ingredient because it is mixed with the oil and molasses. Just sayin'...

Sorry: Calories according to CalorieCount.com, which can also give you fat/fiber/nutrient contents. All of this stuff can be looked up online pretty easily.

It is a little work but you can get these counts by entering the recipe into a couple of online programs, try "gourmet" recipe storage program (you'd need to google and download it, or nutritiondata.com, this is probably the easier choice and other health sites like the Mayo clinic have recipe nutrition calculators.

I LOVE this recipe and have used in many times. My question is: what are the calorie , fat, protein, carb counts in this recipe per 1/4 cup serving. I put it on my yogurt all the time and am watching these counts to lose a few pounds.
