I have had this recipe sitting on my computer desktop for about one year, meaning to try it.

I finally did (and posted it).  I used melted butter instead of vegetable oil because I like the taste better.  I prefer mild honies and used a Thistle Blend honey.  I used almonds and raisins, but I think you can try anything.  I thought it was quite good, so I'm posting it here on the forum too.  It can probably be adapted for other blood types.

Athalie's Granola

Ingredients
4 cups rolled oats
2 cups nuts - mix your favorites, like almonds, walnuts, cashews and pecans
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup honey
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups diced dried fruits such as pears, apples, apricots, and raisins
Preparation

Stir the oats and nuts together. Bake in a large shallow pan in a 350F oven for 15 minutes.
Mix the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt thoroughly. Combine the honey with
vegetable oil and vanilla, mixing well.
When oats and nuts are removed from the oven, stir in the brown sugar
and flour mixture. Then blend in the honey mixture, combining thoroughly
with the dry mix. Spread evenly in the shallow pan.
Return to the oven for 10 more minutes, or until golden, stirring once or
twice while baking.
Transfer to a large bowl or cool shallow pan and let cool. Add the dried fruits
of your choice.
Pack the well-cooled granola in airtight containers. Store in the refrigerator
for the longest shelf life.

Thank you for sharing this recipe, TypeOSecretor.

Yes, this granola recipe could be adapted to fit all blood types, and other grain(s) could be used in lieu of the oats if one can not tolerate oats.

I make a very similar recipe that includes black strap molasses and peanut butter (beni for A's). It's delicious! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

For type Os who like the occasional bowl of granola, you can substitute amaranth flakes or brown rice crispies for the rolled oats, agave sweetener or maple syrup for the honey, and use compliant nuts and dried fruit. The flour can be switched to sweet rice flour, millet or quinoa, and light olive oil works well. If you don't want to use vanilla extract or powder in your granola, you can still get the taste by putting a whole vanilla bean in the container. The bean will scent the granola and flavor it very lightly.

this looks great, but for me it's a no no.. too many grains/ carbs... I really have to stick to  meat / veggies .. wish I could eat this, but I'd have to forgo eating most of the rest of the day and starve to eat this kind of stuff... just doesn't work for me...  I'd be as big as a barn!  enjoy some for me.....I do so much better with my  meat and veggies that I probably won't go back.. but I have great memories!

Cashews are an avoid for all nonnie's, sugar would have to be substituted by most (may agave nector)
and a compliant would need to be used, but it sure sounds good!
