Coach Nicole's Molasses & Honey Breakfast GranolaSubmitted by: COACH_NICOLE
IntroductionThis was my first attempt at making my own granola, because let's face it--that stuff is expensive at the store! You can use any combination of your favorite nuts, seeds and dried fruit, but these are my favorites.

I cringed at the amount of sweets in this, but it is really not as sweet as it sounds.Next time (and there will be a next time) I will add about twice as many fruits, nuts and seeds, since I really like them-then I'll have to re-do the recipe to figure nutrients again.I like the calculator, too. :) - 3/13/12
Really nice flavour. Delicious on top of plain yogurt, too. A lot of calories for a half cup serving, but I found that one quarter of a cup is satisfying enough. I have made this with spelt inplace of oatmeal.
This has become a staple in our house - my husband loves it, too! - 8/11/11
This was fantastic!!! I did make a couple substitutions because I didn't have all the ingredients she had listed, so for butter I used coconut oil, for pecans I used walnuts and I also added in pumpkin seeds. I didn't have blueberries so I used craisens but all in all....YUMMY!!! - 1/27/11
I really liked this recipe. It doesn't say when to put the fruit in, but I assumed common sense and put it in after the liquids. I used what I had (all ground flaxseed, not whole), pumpkin and sunflower seeds, and mixed dried berries. I just took it out of the oven, and it is good! - 12/29/09
When my kids were young, we made granola together so that they had a healthy breakfast that we could afford. A bulk recipe is fun to stir/make with young children. I had a dishpan I used ONLY for making granola with my kids. They learned about measuring and were my official stirrers. - 7/28/09
