This recipe is great and it is easy to change a few things. My changes: I use 6 cups of oats instead of 4 (makes a bigger batch and more lowfat). I also usually use walnuts instead of almonds and I add about 1/2 cup almond meal. I also mix together the canola oil, water, cinnamon, brown sugar, and vanilla and cook it on the stove until it comes to a boil. Makes the granola less gritty with the brown sugar and cinnamon dissolved. I also add a teaspoon of almond extract to the above mixture and it is delicious and I use just a squeeze of honey or even skip it. I like to add dried cranberries, raisins, and dried cherries when the granola is toasted and cooled. Excellent and a lot healthier than the granola you buy at the store...and a lot cheaper!!!
