A very easy-to-make granola recipe that is delicious and the best snack ever. All the girls at my office eat this with yogurt every day. It's awesome! If you don't have some of the dry ingredients, just add more of what you do have. Walnuts are a fine substitute for pecans. You can also try dried blueberries instead of or with the cranberries.

Try substituting coconut oil for the butter it also works well and is a healthier option. Read More

Was easy and Tasty. I split the amounts in half. I did add some All-Bran cereal chopped dates and coconut flakes. I'm pretty sure I could have added whatever fruit or cereal appealed to me and it would've been good. I liked that it wasn't overly sweet. Definitely will make again. Maybe put in dry apples and cinnamon next. It's a very good base. Great topping for yogurt. Read More

Makes a ton and is really easy. My kids enjoyed it too. I added some Chex cereal marshmallows and white chocolate chips. I think it was almost too sweet when I did that as it has a good taste all by itself! Read More

I’ve made it several times! I don’t add the cranberries because I sprinkle the granola over fresh fruit and yogurt Read More

Very good! I used maple syrup instead of honey, coconut oil instead of butter, raisins instead of cranberries, and added 1 1/2 tsp of cinnamon. Read More
