"This is a great recipe for homemade granola. I make it weekly! Any dried fruit can be substituted for the raisins. I use dried cranberries in mine and it's fantastic!" — JAIME15

Just made this recipe, actually made a variation. I only used 1 cup of oats,(I cut it down because I didn't want to waste the oats if I screwed it up!) I added steal cut oats, Chai seed and Hemp seed as well as the wheat germ. I didn't have coconut, but substituted the oil for coconut oil. I didn't use brown sugar, I used maybe a 1/3 cup (all that I had) of coconut sugar and about a 1/4 cup or so of organic maple syrup and some stevia. Also cut down the spices. I added dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds,and almonds. It came out great. I've never made granola before and used this as a guide. I'm surprised more people don't make their own, so easy and good. You can see I changed a lot from a very good recipe and worked with what I had.
Fantastic! I used cranberries & pecans instead of raisins and almonds. Also added in 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds and 1/2 cup cashew pieces. I only had to bake for 45 minutes. Will definitely make this again.
The cup of water threw me for a loop because I've never seen a recipe that calls for that much--but it made it clump better which is exactly what I was hoping for. Great, sweet flavor. I added dried cranberries and chopped almonds at the end and omitted the nutmeg. This will now be my go to recipe. Thanks for sharing!
This was just what I was looking for!! Very easy to throw together, sweet and balanced. I only cooked mine for 30 minutes total, it was crispy enough for us. I will certainly be making this again!
made this for breakfast this morning, and my daughter and I loved it. We substituted craisins and walnuts for the raisins and almonds.
