“From The Lodge at Red River Ranch, Bicknell, UT. Published in Bon Appetit, November 2000. This granola makes a great breakfast served with milk, or a good snack eaten plain. I add raisins, dried cranberries or dried cherries. I also use pecans in place of the walnuts. You could add coconut or other dried fruits. Sometimes I add a little cinnamon. The milk powder and flour help to create nice 1"-1.5" chunks of granola. It can be made up to two weeks ahead.”
