I made these gluten-free with coconut flour instead of all-purpose, and messed up the recipe halfway through, and they STILL turned out delicious. I substituted dried blueberries for the cherries, and left out the shredded coconut, since these were for a work function and I know a lot of people don't like the texture. I got a huge number of compliments from a lot of coworkers, even ones who AREN'T vegan or gluten-intolerant. :)

I inadvertently left out brown sugar and the bars were very good still.

I made this granola for my grand daughter who has dairy and egg allergies, she sent me a note with 5thums up. I liked it a lot, but better yet she liked it ....

Love this granola recipe that does not need dairy or oil! I made it for my daughters first swim meet and shared with friends to rave reviews. I did not have the correct pan size, but it was solid enough to shape into the perfect sized rectangle in a larger pan. The mix looked dry, but it baked up perfect with enough moisture while still holding its shape. Making right now for a weeks worth of quick snack on the way to swim practice.

These turned out delicious! I also substituted cranberries for the cherries since I bought them in bulk and they were cheaper. I used honey because I want to go vegan but wanted to use up the honey that I had left.
