      I made this to go along with Christmas baskets and used cranberries instead of raisins for more of a holiday feel. This was received very well. Great with almond milk poured over top! Thanks for a great granola recipe without a bunch of crazy ingredients!! UPDATE: I have made this again and used applesauce instead of the oil and it really worked. Couldn't tell a difference and it was a bit healthier. Also, used raisins this time and subbed walnuts for cashews & it was absolutley enjoyable!! Thanks again!!

      I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet - it has become a standard for me. LOVE this recipe. I do change it up a bit as I don't like granola with fruit (subtract the raisins) and I prefer a simple "almond joy" feel to the granola so also subtract the cashews. I usually put in at least 3T of chia seeds and either 3T of flax seeds or ground flaxseed meal to add to the nutrition as well. I don't like maple syrup so I've made it with both agave nectar and honey in place of the maple syrup and either way is marvelous.<br/><br/>******************* Infinitely adaptable recipe - it's truly GOOD EATS! ***************************** Added to this review YEARS LATER (it's still our very favorite granola) Weird tip for amazing cookies: Use 1 cup of this granola (again, I make it plus chia/flax and minus cashews and raisins) to replace 1 cup of flour in your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe for a light and crispy change of pace.

      Wow!!! Delicious! I varied the nuts (walnuts, almonds and sunflower seeds), used corn syrup since we were out of honey, added some vanilla & cinnamon and only stirred once (I was afraid it would break up too much?). It is so light and crunchy. Thank you for sharing!
