I got this recipe from the SB Century Club and was pretty interested as it. I used to make a snack or desert that we called: Fro-gurt; frozen fruit, plain yogurt (that I always doctored up a bit) and some granola. I am a bit picky about my granola as I'm not wild about the ones with raisins and such. I REALLY liked the Kroger brand granola and used to get it all the time. It was in the cereal isle but I never used it as such, only topped my fruit N cream with it. Since doing Sb I really haven't thought about this little dish til I came across this flax seed granola recipe. then I got rather excited to try it out and see about making my old dish (it too was a comfort food as it was sweet, tart, creamy and crunchy all at the same time!).
