"A wonderful breakfast treat that's way better than anything you can buy in a box! Use the baking nuts that aren't salted or roasted."

1 1/2 cups
Excellent! Why did I eat cereal out of a box for so long? I always add 1 T of vanilla, 1 T of cinnamon and 3/4 c sunflower or pumpkin seeds. Then I vary the fruit each time I make it, allowing about 1/2 c for each type until I reach the 3 cups total fruit called for by the recipe. I've used dates, figs, dried mango, peaches, nectarines, apricots & cranberries, golden raisins and unsweetened coconut in addition to regular raisins and dried cherries. For variety, substitute coconut, maple or banana flavoring for the vanilla or maple syrup or agave nectar for the honey. Line your baking pans with parchment paper for super easy clean up, then roll the paper up and store it to use for your next batch. You can cut the fat by subbing applesauce for 1/2 of the oil. I've done this several times and it works fine. Note: if you're looking for a clumpy granola, this is not the one for you. This only clumps up some IF your honey is beginning to solidify. If clumps are your thing, choose a recipe with more sugar.
Thought this was just OK. Mine needed some more flavor and it didn't bind together. But I'm not giving up though. Next time I will add more cinnamon, honey and add brown sugar and vanilla. I will also try adding banana like another recipe from this site uses.
Fabulous recipe! I didn't have dried cherries, so I used some extra raisins and broken pieces of sweetened banana chips. I also added some sweetened coconut flakes and a bit of cinnamon. I think 20 minutes total was a bit too long for this recipe - some of the oats were a bit burned. I would reduce the baking time to 15-17 minutes.
Wonderful recipe. I have made others from this site and for the sugarless recipes this one is the best. It is sweet with out the sugar and is gone in minutes. My family loves it for breakfast,snacks and as an ice cream topper. This is a keeper.
This recipe was yummy. I made only half the recipe, and substituted some maple syrup for some of the honey for added flavor, and used craisins, raisins and chopped dates. Delicious!
I loved this base recipe so I made a few changes to make it my own. I use Olive Oil and I sometimes substitute molasses instead of honey for a really great flavor. I also add 1 tsp. Cinnamon AND 1 tsp. of Cloves or Nutmeg. I also added Vanilla! Ever since I started making this recipe about 2 years ago I think I have only bought about 4 boxes of store cereal. I make this (doubled) EVERY week! I change it up with the different spices and also I'll use Almond Flavoring instead of Vanilla. VERY, VERY GOOD! GREAT base recipe!
My favorite, non-sugar recipe. It's a great base - I change the recipe all the time based on what I have in my cupboards. I like to put pistachios (because the green color makes it so pretty!) and quinoa. I have used pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and often use dried blueberries. Change up the flavors by adding vanilla, cinnamon or molasses. Yum!
I was trying to duplicate granola I bought at a Farmer's Market, and this is it. Delicious. Easy to make. Perfect breakfast food with a little almond milk added. I used 2 1/4 cups of sliced almonds in place of the walnuts and pecans, though I'm sure it's great with all three.
