Gingersnap Granola

This recipe was based on this one. For the oats part, I'm sure you could substitute 4 cups of any grains, flax seed, nuts, etc, and it would still be good. I also upped the amount of the spices since the first batch lacked a bit in flavor. Also, if you like things sweet, you might want to consider adding more honey, as this was just perfect for me, and I prefer things less sweet.

4 cups Bob's Red Mill Cereal 5 Grain Cereal
2 Tbsp melted butter
1/2 c honey
1 Tbsp dark molasses
2 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp powdered ginger
1/4 tsp ginger
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Melt butter and mix with honey - nutmeg. Pour over cereal mixture and spread out on a oiled baking sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 20-25 minutes, until toasty brown.
Cool and store in an airtight container.
