    This is delicious! I eat it with greek yogurt & fresh berries for a great breakfast or lunch. I used pomegranate concentrate instear of apple juice concentrate for a bigger anti-oxidant boost! - 1/7/09

    352 calories for 1/2 cup? It may be good for you but I can't see using up that many calories on such a small serving. I will have to take a different route. - 6/16/09

    It was pretty good. I just thought it was a little bit salty. Next time I make it, I will use only 1/4 tsp of salt and I think I will like it better. - 4/3/08

    I really liked this because I love oatmeal, but I use it more as a topping to yogurt rather than a serving on it's own. For those who need to know what .6 of a 5/8 cup serving is, it's 3/8 of a cup. Pretty small amount, but very tasty! - 7/25/09

    I altered this recipe by using a single serving of organic sugar free applesauce instead of apple juice and honey instead of maple syrup because that is what I had available. For the dried fruit I used dried cranberries. Due to the honey, I calculated a new recipe & called it Low-Fat Honey Granola - 8/31/09

    Really good; I don't even much care for granola, but I like this one. I didn't have apple juice concentrate, and thought it would be sweet enough without, so I just used 1/4 c. water to replace the liquid, and it's great. Used walnuts instead of pumpkin seeds. Thanks! - 10/9/07

    I make this all the time...it's great! I usually double the recipe so there's enough for a week for my husband too. The only change that I make is I use 1/2 vanilla and 1/2 almond extract; slivered almonds instead of whole; and I change out the dried fruit for variety. Dried Mango is really good! - 12/13/08

    Very easy & tasty - loved that can make without all the preservatives, etc. My hubby and teenage sons loved it too - could smell it toasting and wanted some as soon as I took it out of the oven! I used dried cranberries and pepitos (squash seeds) instead of pumpkin seeds. - 10/13/08

    For Celiacs, use cross contamination free oats and flax seed meal instead of wheat germ. I use honey and orange juice in place of maple and apple, add walnuts and pine nuts and a touch less cinnamon. - 11/30/07

    I wasn't too sure about this recipe. I didn't think that homemade granola would be sweet enough for my sweet tooth. It exceeded what I thought it would be, the maple syrup just added to the flavour. Very good, and versatile, as cereal, on ice cream, on yogurt, or just dry it's delicious! - 8/11/09
