This was delicious! I used dried cherries and added a bit of nutmeg and a pinch of salt! Perfect for my morning yogurt! Made for PAC Fall 2012

So delicious! I made just as directed, using raisins and lots of cinnamon. I've been munching this plain all afternoon; looking forward to enjoying with yogurt for breakfast in the morning. Thanks for sharing a great recipe! Made for Spring Pick-A-Chef 2013

Nothing like homemade granola, especially as fall sets in. Made this the other day and have been enjoying it the last few mornings with yogurt - quite delicious and not too sweet as someone else mentioned too. Thanks Starry!
