      Delicious; I used 1/2 cup of orange juice instead of water. I just made a "ginger spice" version to make it a little seasonal... so delicious: with the nuts, I added 2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ground cardamom, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1 tsp ground ginger and after cooling completely, 1 cup dried sweetened cranberries.

      I love this recipe. I substitute some maple syrup for some of the brown sugar and typically add walnuts and almonds (raw and unsalted). This is great with banana chips, extra nuts and cinnamon for a banana bread granola. I've also done dried apples, raisins and cinnamon, coconut and apricot, apricot and cranberry and even banana/coconut/pineapple. It won't give you "clusters" but it's easy and delicious no matter what the combo.

      The taste of this granola was ok, the problem is that there is nothing that helps it bind. It ended up falling apart, not like you would expect granola to clump. It needs either some honey, corn syrup and maybe some oil. It just was kind of blah. It's good base though, I liked the flavor of the brown sugar.
