  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.

This recipe wasn't designed for the omega3's that ground flax offers. It is more for fiber and to add a nutty flavor to the granola. However, if you chew the flax seed, you are grinding them, breaking them down and getting the benefits they offer.

Very poor recipe. Flax seed must be ground in order to benefit from the nutrients. Quinoa is a wonderful grain but not like this.

Has the consistancy of something like bird food, but has a good flavor. I added more cinnamon and some dried apples as well.
