This is very good. I also only made half the recipe and that is plenty for now. I omitted the salt completely from the wet ingredients and added 1/4 cup of brown sugar (so I would recommend at least an extra half cup of sugar in the full recipe). Additionally, I substituted applesauce for half the oil called for, substituted ground flax seed for wheat germ, and mixed in craisins and pecans to the final mix. This is not a crunchy granola, at least not the way I made it, and it is not overly sweet. My kids will eat it warmed up with milk (cereal) and I"m sure they'll add more sugar. It is delicious and I absolutely love it! My first attempt at granola and the last change I'll make is to add more dried fruit. I'm very eager to add even more goodness!
