    Katzen's Note:

    I tried Costco's granola the other day, and is it EVER good! Now, I'm not saying this recipe is an exact clone of Costco's, but it's the best I found. Add or subtract ingredients according to your taste - you can use less sugar if you like, increase the amount of wheat germ, add flax seeds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, other dried fruit or nuts - it's perfect for experimenting.

      I made this with mix of oats, rye, barley and wheat flakes. For the fruit I used dried oranges, apples and raisins as well as cranberries. I added a hint of cinnamon just because it goes so well with any granola.<br/>To make this extra crunchy, I covered the baking sheet with baking paper and another inverted baking sheet.<br/>I loved how tasty and crunchy this granola turned out and how easy it was to make. Perfect for a quick breakfast or just snacking. LOVE it!<br/>Thanks so much for sharing this with us, Katzen!<br/>Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap # 63 October 2013.

      Very good! I used slivered almonds, chopped pecans and dried cherries. I also baked mine for 30 minutes. Made for PRMR.

      Absolutely delicious. I did not put the fruit in prior to baking. I have found from other experiments that the fruit gets hard. I always add it as we eat it. Now with that said, I made this for my granddaughter who loves "healthy" food. I gave her a bag of dried apricots and a bag of dry fruit mix to put on when she ate it. My husband and I tasted a piece before I bagged it for her and it was yummy. She called me two days later and said it was the best granola she'd had. I asked if she liked it better than what I usually make and she said, "yes". So this will be the granola I make from now on. I have to make us a batch now. Thanks, Katzen, for this great recipe.
