    Mine burnt real bad! I didn’t even put it for an hour I thought 250degrees is too much but I just trusted the recipe which failed me I am so upset for wasting so much ingredients

    It turned out pretty well, and makes a great addition to yogurt. On its own, I'd say it's not quite as dry as I'd like, hence the 4 star, but overall it's a great recipe with plenty of customisability.

    Love this recipe! Super simple and is soooo much cheaper and healthier than store bought granola.
    Hi Jane, a year ago
    I’ve made this recipe several times. Don’t be deceived! Simple ingredients, easy to make does not mean it is a recipe to pass by. It’s delicious!

    I’ve made this many times and it’s delicious every time. Great on its own or add to trail mix or on top of fruit and yogurt.

    I’ve made this twice now and can’t enough! So much better than store bought granola. I added in a splash of vanilla extract and nutmeg and it makes it even better!

    Just sweet enough just crispy enough and just simple enough to make. Far more delicious and healthy than store bought. A keeper for our family.

    Recipe was easy to make, and I thought I had cracked it when I put it in to bake. My batch got burned, I suspect it had something to do with the fact that I used the measurements for a serving for 1... Will definitely try it again though!
    Great taste and so easy to make

    I made this recipe a while ago and it has turned into my go-to recipe for granola.

    Perfectly crisp, I’ll definitely be making this every week! I’ll try it with maple syrup next time!

    super simple and delicious! I️ added slivered almonds to the mixture before baking. I️ usually like to throw in some dried fruit such as cranberries and sometimes mini chocolate chips after granola has cooled.

    It’s good, I must have put too much oats in it though. Some of it stuck but a lot of one piece oats in it. Will try again.

    Super good! Great starting base!

    This was a great base! I kept close to what the recipe described I just added a few chocolate and peanut butter morsels and gave it an extra 20 min to make the mix a little crunchier

    Delicious! Will make again and again. Will also try adding other ingredients like berries and nuts. Love the fact those items weren't included in recipe, because the "base" needs to be AWSOME first. This is awesome.For the last hour and half 5 doctors/nurses have been pumping drugs into Petey to get his hurt rate down from 175 beats a min....that was intense. Moving him to the 3rd floor.

    Turned out well I used guava strop instead of honey, which I find too sweet added chia seeds and flax
    Jennifer R. 4 years ago
    Simple, delicious & easy to make! I used coconut oil & a small splash of veggie oil to tie in the flaked raw coconut I added. I also threw in sunflower & chia seeds, walnuts, pepitas & dried sweet cherries. Cleaned out the seed & nut bin for this one!

    very good! i added a few extra things in place of a 1.5 cups of granola (coconut flakes, pecans, pumpkin seed, sunflower seed, currants).

    Love this recipe. I use it all the time. The cinnamon really adds extra flavor. Person i usually don't add salt because i don't think it's necessary and made mine a bit too salty.

    Easy & delicious! My partner and I love it on top of yogurt or fruit. I have a big jar of it in my cupboard and so happy that I made it myself. I'll add sliced almonds next time :)

    Lovely! I had tried a couple of recipes for granola before without much success - this one works really well, though. I especially like the clear directions to pat the oats close together on the oven tray so they clump together as they cool. Like a giant flap-jack! Loved it. Tasty and easy to do. I don't brown them as long as the recipe directs, though - I prefer them lighter and more chewy, about 20 mins max. Will do this on a regular basis!

    Not as crunchy as i had hoped but very very tasty and addicting even to eat alone w/o yogurt or anything
