"This is a great recipe for homemade granola. I make it weekly! Any dried fruit can be substituted for the raisins. I use dried cranberries in mine and it's fantastic!"

Just made this recipe, actually made a variation. I only used 1 cup of oats,(I cut it down because I didn't want to waste the oats if I screwed it up!) I added steal cut oats, Chai seed and Hemp seed as well as the wheat germ. I didn't have coconut, but substituted the oil for coconut oil. I didn't use brown sugar, I used maybe a 1/3 cup (all that I had) of coconut sugar and about a 1/4 cup or so of organic maple syrup and some stevia. Also cut down the spices. I added dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds,and almonds. It came out great. I've never made granola before and used this as a guide. I'm surprised more people don't make their own, so easy and good. You can see I changed a lot from a very good recipe and worked with what I had.
Fantastic! I used cranberries & pecans instead of raisins and almonds. Also added in 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds and 1/2 cup cashew pieces. I only had to bake for 45 minutes. Will definitely make this again.
Exactly what I was looking for, a bare bones, basic granola with only a few inexpensive ingredients. The possibilities to customize this are endless.
Excellent, easy recipe. I add a teaspoon of salt and some real maple syrup in place of half the brown sugar. I also used walnuts and pecans and dried cranberries. We love this granola! And I made some for gifts for teachers at my sons' preschool and was asked for the recipe, and now they make it all the time too.
The cup of water threw me for a loop because I've never seen a recipe that calls for that much--but it made it clump better which is exactly what I was hoping for. Great, sweet flavor. I added dried cranberries and chopped almonds at the end and omitted the nutmeg. This will now be my go to recipe. Thanks for sharing!
This was just what I was looking for!! Very easy to throw together, sweet and balanced. I only cooked mine for 30 minutes total, it was crispy enough for us. I will certainly be making this again!
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 on some plain yogurt I had sweetened with honey and sliced strawberries. Nice breakfast!
I didn't have flaked coconut, so didn't use it. Like others reviewers I changed it up a bit. I added about a tbsp and a half of honey, and used virgin coconut oil instead of regular oil. I added dried cranberries, yogurt covered raisins, chopped pecans, and chopped almonds. It was a nice granola, but have made better. Google "Lazy granola", in my opinion, that recipe tastes better!
