Fruited Granola

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

This recipe makes up a delicious breakfast treat or even a nice-tasting munchie. It comes from the Famous Brand Name Recipes cookbook 'WHOLE-WHEAT COOKING.' Preparation time DOES NOT INCLUDE the time needed in Step 9 to "cool completely in pan..."

I adore dried fruit and rolled oats and whole grain cereal flakes so was very surprised that I liked this recipe so much less than your other posted granola recipe (that I have tried and loved). Personal preference IS everything as other reviwers loved this a lot ~, so DO try this for yourself... but for me at least I * think* that the combination of dates and dried cranberries was the sticking point, two very different flavours that I just didn't love together in the end. Never mind, you can't win 'em all and for me I now know that I can go back to your other granola recipe that *was* a hit for me. Please see my Rating system: it was good to have tried. Thanks!
