It's funny how differntly we can each perceive a recipe! :) I found these to be very, very good... but almost too sweet. I followed the recipe exactly, but next time I think I'll begin cutting back the syrup by at least 1/4 cup. That said, there is nothing to compare to the taste of fresh granola, and I will indeed be trying these very soon!

I tried these out yesterday.My kids don't like all the different nuts and fruits so I used all chopped peanuts and double the amount of raisens. The batch turned out crunchy and alot of the sweetness seemed to bake out of the granola.So I melted a package of choc chips and spread on top.It seemed to do the trick because the kids were scarfing them down at snack time. I will definitely make these again but shorten the baking time and put the chips on top when they come out of the oven.
