  • This recipe is not healthy at all! Regular sugar, regular flour, butter, corn flakes. Can you say "high carb" and "unhealthy"!
    FYI just because a recipe is called "Granola", does not make it healthy:) - 8/27/12

  • Wonderful! Even my husband who freaks aound healthy food,loved them. Here are the few changes I made: only 1/2 cup brn sugar,only 1/2 cup dark choc chips, 1/2 cup chpd pecans, I used an oat bran cereal.
    These had a toffeeish taste to them,nutty and sweet ( I might even lower the sugar more). - 1/2/10
