I've been testing several granola recipes lately. This one is my favorite! I do make some changes, and like the recipe description says, it's very versatile! I use 1/2 cup flax seed (the miracle grain, as I call it) and omit the wheat germ and sunflower seeds. I use 1/2 cup sliced almonds and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. I also add 1 tsp. vanilla extract. I love the nutmeg and cinnamon - it smells so good baking! For cost reasons, I only use raisins and dried cranberries for the fruit. I end up baking mine for almost 40 minutes until it is toasted and crunchy. It clumps up very nicely. Hint: stir the oil and honey together first before adding to oat mixture.

Granola didn't break apart in chunks as expected so I baked it a little longer with same result. Looks more like cereal. Followed recipe exactly except used safflower oil in place of canola oil. Maybe that was the problem. Tastes delicious so will use it as cereal. Rated as a three but partly my fault because of oil replacement. Thanks, Chris!

Very good granola. I quadrupled the recipe but only made 2 1/2x the syrup (oil and honey). I combined all the dry ingredients (except for the dry fruit and placed it in the oven for about 20 minutes to toast them up. I combined the oil and honey in a saucepan with the cinnamon and a pinch of salt and brought it to a boil. This thinned out the honey and made it easier to pour over all the dry ingredients. I added the dried fruit 1/2 way thru the baking so they would not burn. I needed to bake the granola for much much longer than suggested. But it was very good.

I have been following & making this reciped for 3 months now. My only modification is to half the recipe (since I'm the only one who eats it) and omit the sunflower seeds (not a fan). Otherwise, I have memorized this recipe and eat it mixed w/what ever at least 5 days a week!

Excellent recipe! I took the advice of another reviewer and boiled the honey first to make it spread further. Thanks for a great recipe Chris!

This was good. We took the advice from another reviewer to mix the honey and oil together first! I then waited to add the oatmeal until last after mixing the other ingred. with honey/oil mix. Instead of wheat germ, I used an extra 1/4 cup flax seed and didn't add sunflower seeds. For fruit, we used raisins and craisins. We baked about 25-30 min. until we started to smell it, then I took it out because I didn't want it to burn. Ours didn't break into pieces. *update* We made this again and liked it much better the second time for some reason. I let it cool and sit overnight and I think the key may be to let it cool COMPLETELY (I realized I didn't do that the first time) because then it did actually break a little more into pieces. We love this for cereal in the morning!
