    What a wonderful recipe--especially for its simplicity! I skipped the oil and used a little applesauce instead and it turned out beautifully. I also added 1 tsp more cinnamon. Thanks! :) - 9/20/11

    I made a couple of changes because I wanted them to be more like bars. I added a few Tablespoons of Flax seed and 1/4 cup of peanut butter. Baked them in a 9 x 13 inch pan for the same amount of time and cut them into bars. They were awesome! - 7/22/12

  • This is so delicious and simple, no changes necessary! That said, I think I will add peanut butter next time, just because I'm a PB addict. I might also experiment with lower fat options, but I will definitely keep track of this recipe as published! - 9/5/12

  • Great recipe!! Used applesauce instead of the oil and added 3tbsp of Agave Nectar.

    However the nutrition information is way off with the servings at 16, this recipe makes about 6 cups not 16 and therefore the nutrition is understated.

    Servings: 16 1/2 cups not 16 cups! I get about 8 cups out of this recipie so that is what the servings are based on. It really depends on how much you break up the granola before measuring and eating it :)

  • In less than an hour from start to finish I had this easy to make granola cooling on the rack. The taste is very good and I will definitely make it again. The only thing I will do different is add the fruit at the end after the baking so stays soft. - 10/21/10
