My mother's recipe. Crunchy, sweet, buttery, and chewy, this is great as a snack or breakfast cereal.

I have to admit that I didn t measure anything. I just estimated the amounts added some dried cherries I wanted to use up and also a little wheat germ as a personal preference. The honey was from a farmers market and was incredible so I knew it would be perfect for the granola. It's very good. Read More

I didn't have apricots or golden raisins so I substituted cranberries and regular raisins. Didn't have all the other nuts I needed either substituted slivered almonds and crumbled up walnuts. It was excellent. I think that so long as you have approximately the same measurements of other nuts and berries this is a can't fail incredible granola. Read More

I wanted a purely vegan granola so I replaced the honey with 1/3 cup maple syrup and 2 tablespoons brown sugar; the butter with an equal amount of melted coconut oil. Great crunchy texture. Read More

With some subs, pumpkin seed instead of almonds-no apricot (was too sour)-dash of sea salt & cinnamon, this is my favorite granola recipe. Next batch, I'm trying dried cherries instead of cranberries. Read More

I made a few changes. I added coconut oil instead of butter and dried coconut. I didn't have any walnuts so I left those out and have had to to put whole almonds which I chopped. I made it a few times and have used both honey and agave nectar with similar outcomes. I like this recipe because it lends well to the adaptions. I tried using tinfoil to line the pan and that did not work. Parchement paper works the best. Read More

Good as a basic granola recipe; it is easy to substitute nuts & fruit and add more grains (chia seeds & quinoa). I added almond extract to the honey/butter mixture. In the future I will double the honey & butter as I prefer my granola a bit "stickier". Read More
