Delicious! I made one triple-batch with pecans and walnuts and one with just pecans, and I preferred the just pecans one. This was SO easy to make! Definitely does NOT make clusters, just nice crunchy granola for cereal or for topping things (also a delicious snack). Will definitely make again! We're giving these batches away as gifts.
The verdict is Delicious! I made exactly as directed, only using a cookie sheet and not stirring until completely cooled for better clumps. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe, Redsie!
Five crunchy, granola-y stars!! Phew, this is quite sweet, and I only used 3 Tbsp. maple syrup with 1 Tbsp agave nectar (had no corn syrup). I also used 1/2 almonds with the walnuts. It's sooo tasty with lots of ice-cold soymilk and sliced banana! Thanks Redsie! Tagged for Holiday Tag.
