Homemade Pumpkin Seed Granola

This recipe from the Williams-Sonoma website is easy and quick. The ingredients can be custom made to your taste, too. Here's the variety it suggests:

Any of the following ingredients may be added to the granola in balanced quantities to taste: chopped dried dates, apples, pineapples, apricots, pears or mangoes; dark raisins or golden raisins; dried cranberries, cherries or blueberries; chopped almonds, hazelnuts, raw peanuts or sunflower seeds; and/or wheat flakes or oat bran. Also try different honeys, such as lavender or orange blossom, or substitute maple syrup for the honey. When trying new additions, be sure to maintain an appealing proportion of crunchy ingredients in the final mixture.
Wow, that's about anything you got in the cupboard. Karen, Andrew, the Hub and I ate it over bananas for dessert one evening and with milk for breakfast the next day. Everyone liked it and I would definitely make it again and experiment a little with their ingredient suggestions.
