Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

Small serving. Too many calories. Why the sweetener and why not suggest Agave?; better choice for diabetics or anyone. Coconut is optional and is high in calories; does the calorie count include the coconut? Omit the sweetener and coconut then maybe it's OK; still small serving & high calories Submitted by:

Is the coconut included in the nutritional break down?

I haven't tried this recipe yet, but wanted to post a reminder that only 100% maple syrup is real maple syrup. Be sure to read the ingredients on any sugar free or maple flavored syrups such as Log Cabin, Mrs. Butterworth, store brands, etc. They are made of sugar, chemicals, and flavorings. Submitted by:

I make my own granola too... I think I will try this recipe but add a touch of salt and cinnamon. Looks good! Submitted by:

If you're counting carbs, you could use sugar free maple syrup - my local Walmart sells sugar free IHop pancake syrup! Unsweetened applesauce might be better than the bananna and it wouldn't be as sweet. Submitted by:

Good recipe, I love making my own granola. I tried yours but cut the added sugar. One could also try cutting the sugar and swapping in pecans or pumpkin seeds since they tend to help with the sweet tooth. Submitted by:

Good, but in my opinion the syrup useless and adds too much calories. Bananas and almonds are superfoods so important for our wellbeing and at the same time taste delicious by themeselves. We crave too much sweets, our tastes needs to get educated again to natural food. Submitted by:

Excited to try. Not excited about that much sugar in the syrup or honey. I eat too much even with natural sugars. Submitted by:

I'm trying to figure out where all that sodium comes from... the granolas I BUY don't have that much. Submitted by:
