I love raw millet or steel cut oats in my granola -- adds a nice crunch.

I like flax seeds, walnuts, protein powder to help bind crunchy clusters, dried apples and raisins and cinnamon.

It is also nice to do a tropical version with toasted coconut, dried pineapple tid bits, macadamia nuts toasted and chopped, papaya or mango slices, and BANANA CHIPS always = YUMMMMMY!
