Coach Nicole's Molasses & Honey Breakfast Granola

Coach Nicole's Molasses & Honey Breakfast Granola

Introduction

This 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.

    Just finished making this and it tastes great. Better than the stuff I've found in the store, as I like a bold taste, and this has it. I changed the nuts and dried fruit to use what I had, but the essence is the same. - 1/8/09

    THIS IS EXCELLENT...my one question is how much a serving? 1/2 cup or 1 cup - 6/17/09

  • 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
