This turned out great - I was nervous but it was really successful.I used orange juice concentrate so flavour was terrrific. I was grateful for the advice to watch closely though and luckily mine did not burn !!

This didn't have as much flavor as other orange granola recipes, but it was very healthy. I added some coconut, and doubled the honey, and also used rasin bran instead of all-bran cereal. Make sure you watch it close, or it will get burnt!
