    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

    I made some changes since I'm hypoglycemic. No apple juice concentrate. Sugar Free Maple Syrup. Added some Fiber One cereal for extra substance. Excellent! - 9/16/07

    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

    This granola was great! Not too sweet like most of the granola in the store. I changed the recipe and used 2 tbsp honey instead of the maple syrup and used only .25 cup raisins and did not use coconut, which cuts out a lot of calories, with only 190 calories per half cup. My fiancee loved it! - 5/26/10

    Very good. Used pecans instead of almonds and dried apricots as the fruit and omitted the salt. Used a third of a serving on a yoghurt parfait. A lot tastier and not as sweet as commercial brands with no preservatives. - 4/11/10

    I tried this today-Great. I'm more used to Granola I make with wheat germ, flax seed meal, and nuts with oil and honey. But I know my type is way higher in Fats and Calories. So this was my choice for my spark diet. And it was just as good over yogurt or jello or pudding-Low fat of course.Thank you - 1/22/10
