I love this granola which was adapted from A Healthy Passion many years ago.  I use it on top of smoothies daily, and my kids love eating it solo.  Oats contain beta-glucans, the powerful polysaccharides that helps reduce blood sugar and insulin response, produce an increased feeling of fullness, and reduce total and LDL cholesterol levels.
