Hi, thanks for responding. I make a gallon because I keep it in a tupperware and it actually doesn't last long enough for my liking:) The numbers after are from the food tracker, calorie, fat, etc. I didn't want to rewrite it all and when I copied it it left all that stuff on too. I was tempted to remove it, but I decided not to. I find that this program may not fit my needs, because I make a lot of may own stuff and it is very time consuming looking up all the ingredients. My internet service is not all that great. Anyways, thanks again.

Hello, I'm just starting on Spark People, it's already giving me challenges. I make my own breakfast cereal by the gallon, Kind of hard to break it down to portion size. Great recipe for those of you who would like it, but it seems steep on calories when I put it in here. The Dr.'s say you should eat nuts, so I thought this would be good, now I'm not so sure. Any suggestions on the breakdowns?
Aloha Granola (makes about one gallon of granola) 8 cups oatmeal ½ cup vegetable oil ½ cup packed brown sugar 1 cup honey 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract ¼ teaspoon salt ¾ cup shelled, unsalted sunflower seeds, toasted ¾ cup macadamia nuts, chopped, toasted 2/3 sesame seeds, toasted 1 cup shaved coconut 1 cup sliced almonds, toasted
I did my best here, but does anyone have any better suggestions to figuring this stuff out?
