This is very good! I subbed out some honey for some of the brown sugar, just for preference. I don't like raisins so I subbed out for some dried cranberries. Loved the coconut! Served this o...

This is the first granola recipe that hasn't either burnt, stuck to my pan or been sickly sweet. Would make again! would add some sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, or other small nuts to add to the r...
