I LOVE this granola recipe! It's easy to adjust according to what you have or what you like. I love that it uses no oil, keeping the fat content lower than traditional granola. I usually substitute organic prunes for the dates and use whole raw almonds, coarsely chopped. I add the almonds to the granola mix and bake it all together. I've made this granola many times, and every once in a while, it doesn't get dry/crunchy enough. When that happens (maybe due to humidity in the house, or water content of fruit mixture), I just re-bake it for a while the next day (or turn off the oven and leave it in there to cool, which dries it out a bit more.) Thank you for such a versatile, healthful recipe! Update: I have substituted prunes, raisins, dried cranberries, or a combination for the dates with good results. Any dried fruit would do, I think. Also, for added sweetness, I sometimes use apple juice instead of the water.
