Granola with Blessings, from a dear friend

Making this is so worth while, it is easy to make, tastes super, and makes a good gift. The minister of our church got it from a friend, and she shared this recipe with me. I have made it many times. It keeps well in a tight plastic container, and it makes 3 pounds total. I use it on top of Greek Style Yogurt, or eat just a handful as a snack. I also have tossed a little into my pancake batter or muffin batter.
