Granola Las Bugambilias

In Oaxaca we stayed at a charming bed and breakfast place called La Casa de los Sabores, and it truly was a House of Flavours. Each morning we were presented with a glorious breakfast from the local cuisine, including a divine granola that took Galit’s fancy. She particularly liked the crunchy texture and the Amaranth seeds. The owner of the B&B, Pilar Cabrera, kindly gave us her recipe (Granola Las Bugambilias). The recipe makes a lot of granola. Galit has a her own variation.

(1) Given nuts and seeds appear elsewhere in the ingredients I'm not quite sure what is included here.
(2) Amaranth was a staple in the diet of pre-Columbian Aztecs and is high in protein (15-18%). Amaranth is available in health food stores.
