WOW! I just made granola! What a fantastic recipe, and a great way to save big bucks at the grocery store. I doubled the recipe and like other reviewers didn't change the amount of butter or sugar per extra 2 c oats. However, I thought it needed a little more sweet and added extra brown sugar at the end. I put about a cup of dried bananas, a cup and a half of cranberries, 4 tbsp honey, a cup of chopped walnuts and about a cup and a half of dried coconut. If you like your granola to stick together more, leave the recipe the way it is. I like using less butter and the granola came out fantastic! You could add just about anything you have on hand to this and make it great, cinnamon, almonds, raisins and a little allspice would make a really great fall mix. Tons of variations are possible and they'll all come out scrum-diddly-umptious I am sure! ENJOY! If you love granola, truly you cannot afford not to try this recipe. Literally -- this is going to save us SO much money :) And it's SO EASY! I just made this again and it's not as crispy as I'd like it, so I baked it for a while (on the cookie sheet) at 200 (about an hour - 1 1/2 hrs) and then let it cool on the countertop in the cookie sheet for the rest of the afternoon. It is crispy and perfect. Love making my own granola!
