I made this with no changes and it was pretty good. Very simple, very quick to throw together. It tastes good, but I think I would prefer a deeper vanilla flavor. It was delicious on top of my strawberry yogurt.

I used regular brown sugar b/c I don't use sweeteners. I also used honey in place of white sugar. I think this granola is quite bland. Next time I might try adding some maple syrup in place of the white sugar. I also added more nuts and flax seeds. Pretty boring flavor. There is another granola recipe called 'Jennifer's Granola' on this site that I prefer.

Currently in the oven and it smells AMAZING! Can't wait until it cools so I can taste it. I used regular brown sugar instead of sweetener :-).

Made this with Mexican vanilla and the flavor is so intense. My go-to snack!

Great base granola recipe. Easy to create varitions on the theme with this one. My changes were straight up brown sugar, omit white sugar, 1 heaping Tbsp cinn, used my homemade super chunky applesauce, added flax seed, and more vanilla. The chunky applesauce made larger clumps of granola--I like that.

I love this because it is low fat. I used a heaping tablespoon of cinnamon but followed the rest of the recipe. My applesauce was unsweetened. Very good and very fast. Will test drive it with my grandkids over Christmas.

easy granola base; hubby loved it; added nuts and dried berries to make it his own.

I used powdered vanilla, but it didn't taste quite as good as it smelled.
