The organic, nutty, rustic flavor is perfect. I love this recipe. It's the first time I've made granola and I was very pleased.
Here's some thoughts: 1) Buying all the ingredients is expensive, but worth it. Figured on a "per bowl" basis, the cost isn't so outrageous though, because, 2) the recipe yields a LOT. I didn't have a bowl large enough to mix all the ingredients, so I used a large roaster, 3) I prepared it as written and though the recipe is versatile and I might experiment a bit, it's really perfect "as is," 4) I am a huge nut fan and the ratio of nuts in this recipe is very high, 5) this is probably common sense, but if you use two baking sheets, monitor the baking sheet closest to the oven heating element closely. The granola closest to the heating element will burn and stick to the foil if baked too long.
I wonder what the purpose of the oil is. I would like to use olive oil next time or leave out the oil all together, but I'd like to know what the ramifications might be. I'd hate to spend the money for the ingredients only to learn that the recipe was ruined because an ingredient was left out.
