Alright ladies, I went ahead and tried out this recipe with olive oil. Still delicious! So my opinion is that if you want the added health benefit, go for it because the olive oil flavor isn't obvious AT ALL so unless you have really sensitive taste buds. I made the recipe with what I had in the house so no oat bran (doubled the wheat germ), no walnuts, no molasses, added cranberries, added chopped prunes, added raisins, added 1 TBS vanilla extract, and 1 TSP almond extract. I baked in the oven for 30 min at 300 (to dry it out) and then 12 minutes at 350 (to toast it). And don't just turn on the timer and leave: take it out every 10 minutes and give the granola a turn! Also, like another reviewer mentioned, don't be alarmed if your granola is soft after coming out of the oven ... it hardens as it cools!
