The granola has been cooling for the last 20 minutes, and the small bites I've had taste wonderful. I'm giving this recipe four stars because, though the basics are there, it seemed like the proportions and cooking time were both off.
On the recommendation of other reviewers, I doubled the quantity of brown sugar and honey to 1/2 cup each; I added 1/3 cup of oil. I'm glad I did both of those things, because as I was coating the oats/coconut mixture, I was afraid I didn't have enough, even after doubling those ingredients. I also added slightly more vanilla and cinnamon, and also added a pinch of salt to taste. Although I did include unsweetened coconut (flakes; I didn't have it in shredded form), I think it caused some of the oats to brown more quickly than others, and eventually to burn a bit. I would leave that out next time or add it in the last five minutes to get a toasted taste without the risk of burning it. Would recommend with incorporation of these changes.
