    Marg (CaymanDesigns)'s Note:

    I was in the mood for a more gourmet granola than I usually make, and this is what I came up with.

      This was SO good! I am happy to have finally found a go-to recipe for granola. I think I might try adding almond extract in addition to the vanilla next time. It doesn't need it, but I think it might be good. I baked it at 325 in my convection and will drop it to 300 next time because I like mine lighter. Awesome recipe, thanks Marg!

      Made these for Christmas baskets and they were a hit! Did use some maple syrup instead of honey and some dried cranberries instead of cherries. Thank you Marg!! :)

      I wish I could give this more stars. 5 stars just isn't enough! This recipe is to die for!!! I try to keep homemade granola on hand and this was the best recipe by far. I used one cup of dried cherries (I cut each cherry in half) and 1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips. I have this for breakfast with a little milk and I feel like such a little kid eating it! Very, very delicious. Thanks Marg for another wonderful recipe!
