I love this version of my Sweet Thyme Maple Nut Granola. I like that there are no fillers like oats and I like how versatile it is. You are welcome to change the amounts of the nuts and seeds but I would suggest that your total cups of nuts and seeds end up to be the same as listed.  Be creative with your spices, add dried berries, or perhaps, make a savory mix with some curry spices which would make a fantastic garnish for a salad.  Of course, this makes the perfect topping for banana ice-cream, yogurt, pancakes, or oatmeal.  Expect to use a lot less than you would with a normal granola blend.  It is  so satisfying and rich in flavor that a little goes a long way.  Enjoy!
